Beginning in 1951, Will Troyer embarked on a thirty-year career that included positions such as fish and game warden and manager of the Kodiak Island brown bear preserve. Troyer's engaging prose affirms his passionate connection to the natural world, as he describes experiences such as being in the midst of a herd of 40,000 caribou. "Bear Wrangler" is an absorbing tale of one man's experience as an authentic pioneer in the last vestiges of American wilderness.
Will Troyer worked for thirty years in Alaska for the U.S. Department of the Interior. He is also the author of Into Brown Bear Country and From Dawn to Dusk: Memoirs of an Amish-Mennonite Farm Boy.
