Alone in the Fortress of the Bears: 70 Days Surviving by Bruce Nelson

By Bruce Nelson

at the final day of June, my bush pilot left me on my own and with no nutrients in a wasteland rainforest of Southeast Alaska. He might go back in September.

For the subsequent ten weeks my survival may rely on foraging, looking and fishing on an island i might proportion with 1,600 brown bears.

This is my tale of starvation and solitude, salmon fishing and stormy seas, torrential rains and mountain sunsets, huge halibut and deer searching, campfires and killer whales.

Illustrated with approximately fifty photographs and a map.
