From 1919 to 1970, Olaf Hanson was a trapper, trader, prospector,game guardian, fisherman, and road blasting expert in northeasternSaskatchewan. He told his life story to popular Saskatchewan author A.L. Karras, who wrote this memoir in the 1980s.

In an uncompromising, straightforward style, Karras and Hansonreveal the geography, wildlife, and natural history of the region aswell as the business and social interactions between people. The bookoffers a look at the vanished subsistence and commercial economy of theboreal forest, based on a fascinating personal story of courage andphysical stamina.

Arthur L. Karras authored the classic Saskatchewan books North toCree Lake: The Rugged Lives of the Trappers Who Leave CivilizationBehind and Face the North Wind. This manuscript came tolight after his death in 1999.
