    While George did not enjoy many of the comforts that I had (for example, paved roads and stocked supermarkets within walking distance), I am nonetheless envious of his decision to move to Alaska on his own at the age of 15, and start a life of freedom there--filled with not just danger and adventure, but also simple pleasures and meaningful friendships. My favorite extract below: "[...] I came inside from standing outside all day fishing and looked over at Johnny. He was washing dishes in a bucke While George did not enjoy many of the comforts that I had (for example, paved roads and stocked supermarkets within walking distance), I am nonetheless envious of his decision to move to Alaska on his own at the age of 15, and start a life of freedom there--filled with not just danger and adventure, but also simple pleasures and meaningful friendships. My favorite extract below: "[...] I came inside from standing outside all day fishing and looked over at Johnny. He was washing dishes in a bucket. I thought, 'That looks like the bucket we crap in.' The boat did not have a toilet and it is common practice to go in a five-gallon bucket. [...]"

    Poorly written by someone with a huge ego I'm always intrigued by Alaska and the world the people there live in. I picked up this book hoping to get a better glimpse into that life.

I appreciate the tough nature of living in Alaska but hearing about killing a 10 foot bear and a full grown wolf for trophies in some Utah assholes home while leaving the remains to attract more animals to kill has no appeal to me. This is not the Alaska that I am enthralled with.

    Enjoyable and Interesting. It takes a particular kind of person to embrace the challenges of living in the more isolated parts of coaastal Alaska, and to not only survive but thrive on the landscape and lifestyle that it presents. George Davis has certainly proven himself to be up to the challenge throughout the years. His experiences are varied and interesting, and his story is told in a conversational way that is enjoyable and easy to read.

    'Alaska Man' is an absolutely fascinating look into the life and adventures of George Davis. From the very first pages to the final cliff hanger, it is packed with excitement, danger and a good dose of humour.

    Good Adventure Tale Once I got past the feeling that the author was bragging about how great he is and started to understand that he was just retelling his story, I really enjoyed the book. Adventure, daring and a little bit of humor make this a good read.

    Interesting read but never really had a good grasp on the timeline. It ends very abruptly - what happened to Mike?
