Bring Frontier Alaska to You! _Experience Cultural and Wilderness Discoveries at Home
Have you dreamed of secluded sites in frontier Alaska where only a fortunate few have visited, or of more easily accessable locations renowned for inspirational natural beauty? Is casting in wild rivers and streams for salmon near resident brown bear or wandering caribou an adrenaline spike for you? Join me on my life changing adventure treks throughout southwest and southcentral Alaska.
Alaska Adventure Book PURSUING THE UNTAMED provides a virtual trip to Nature's undisturbed. You will experience Alaska Natives at their subsistence fish camp site on the banks of a "wild and scenic" river in the Bristol Bay Region, a Yup'ik Eskimo village at the mouth of a secluded sport fishing river flowing to the Bering Sea, an abandoned Aleut Native village next to a salmon rich river on the Alaska Peninsula, pristine Kodiak Island with its wild predator bear population along clear rivers filled with bright silver salmon, and the famous Kenai Peninsula with a variety of fishing and wildlife encounters that includes an understanding of the salmon's rigorous advance upriver, including its spawning ritual.
Also included in this memoir account are personal experience presentations of Alaska's "heart and soul" - the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race, and a romantic view of Alaska's extreme weather conditions. Each chapter focuses on the pleasure in being more fully alive through wilderness discoveries. Rare photo illustrations enhances the curious spirit of the reader.

About the Author
Alaskan author and artist Doug Myers was raised in Oregon and while living in Washington served as a licensed counseling therapist. He later became an owner of a remote fishing lodge located on a designated 'wild and scenic' river in the Bristol Bay Region of Southwest Alaska. Visits with Native friends at their historic village site and other distant areas offered cultural insights. Wilderness adventure treks for sport fishing and encounters with Alaska's renowned wildlife were extended to the Bering Sea, Alaska Peninsula, and Kodiak Island. Alaska's Kenai Peninsula also provided pleasure to his arm as a sport fisherman and inspiration to his eye as an author and artist. For Myers, renewal comes in the wilderness of Alaska with a fly-fishing rod in hand and a camera in his backpack . . . hundreds of memories feed his spirit and connect him to the wild and scenic land that is his home. (Linda Bryant, Columnist, The Art of Peace, The Herald)

Throughout my life I have known an enthusiam for risk and a satisfaction from each adventure accomplishment. In PURSUING THE UNTAMED many of the experiences the author Doug Myers writes about reminds me of my own adventures. . . . Accounts of the salmon's spawning ritual and encounters with brown bears are interestingly informative. . . . the book offers a good understanding of instincts specific to Alaska's wildlife. . . . Doug effectively humanizes the wild creatures and events in order to illustrate the essentials in living a fulfilled life. I recommend the reading of PURSUING THE UNTAMED to all who appreciate a sensitive, thoughtful understanding of Alaska's wilderness, its Native people and culture, and wildlife. __Norman D. Vaughan
