The Man From Sheep Mountain by Kim A. Ueeck
Regular price $ 19.95
Ed Ueeck's (eek) life in Alaska would earn him several titles such as Master Trapper, Sourdough, and The Man from Sheep Mountain. Arriving in 1929 with just change in his pocket, Ed never looked back. Matanuska Valley's snow-capped mountains only strengthened his resolve to make it on his own. Within a year, Ed purchased a remote 80-mile trap line which circumvented Sheep Mountain and was running the trap line on showshoes by himself. Any small mistake on the trap line could cost him his life with no one to come to his rescue. Once, a wolverine he'd trapped came to life as Ed carried it over his shoulder. Quickly emptying his trusty 30-06 into the angry wolverine, Ed narrowly diverted disaster. From having one of his cabins burn to the ground in mid-winter to a near shootout with a trap line jumper, Ed's story is a fascinating window into the life of one of Alaska's true pioneers.
