Russell Annabel is by any account one of the most colorful and controversial characters ever to set foot in Alaska. Rusty moved to Alaska as a teenager, hooked up with the legendary Tex Cobb, and started writing stories about hunting in the Northland, mainly for Sports Afield. These were among the best-written outdoor stories of the twentieth century, and they made his reputation far and wide. From his homestead in Toonaklut, he could describe a wilderness populated with majestic Dall sheep, ornery moose, dumbbell caribou, and enraged grizzlies as no other man could. His extraordinary talents allow us, even today, to share in the excitement of Alaska in the first half of the twentieth century. Based on interviews with Rusty's American wife and his recently discovered Mexican family, and illustrated with rare photos, this is the story of the man behind the legend, and it is as fascinating as any tale Rusty Annabel ever spun for the sporting magazines. Illustrated with dozens of never before published original photos of Rusty, Tex Cobb and the Alaska they loved.
