Keith Crowley, Randy Zarnke

Host Keith Crowley talks with Randy Zarnke, President of the Alaska Trappers Association, about his project to record oral histories of the old-timers in the Alaska backwoods. Zarnke has spent the last 23 years tracking down these old hunters and trappers to preserve their stories. As you might imagine, there are some real characters out there in the Alskan bush. For example, one of Randy's interviewees began his career by live-trapping brown bears using a bucket of ether as a sedative! Zarnke has put many these exciting and incredible stories into a book called "Alaska Tracks."

Show Notes:
