Sorry, this item is unavailable at this time.

His father is a white trapper, his mother an Athabascan Indian who walks a thousand miles in winter to reunite with her family. Thus, Jimmy Huntington learns early how to survive on the land. When his mother dies, Huntington -- at age seven -- must care for his younger siblings. A courageous and inspiring man, Huntington hunts wolves, fights bears, survives close calls too numerous to mention, and becomes a championship sled-dog racer. On the Edge of Nowhere is an enduring Alaska classic, still tingling with excitement. This handsome third edition of Jimmy Huntington's memoir has been republished with photographs for the first time.
