Northern Rover: The Life Story of Olaf Hanson

Synopsis

From 1919 to 1970, Olaf Hanson was a trapper, trader, prospector,

game guardian, fisherman, and road blasting expert in northeastern

Saskatchewan. 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 Hanson

reveal the geography, wildlife, and natural history of the region as

well as the business and social interactions between people. The book

offers a look at the vanished subsistence and commercial economy of the

boreal forest, based on a fascinating personal story of courage and

physical stamina.

Arthur L. Karras authored the classic Saskatchewan books North to Cree Lake: The Rugged Lives of the Trappers Who Leave Civilization Behind and Face the North Wind. This manuscript came to light after his death in 1999.
