A terrific book! December 2, - Published on Amazon.
I met Jeff Hartman when I first came to Alaska to join his staff a couple years before he retired. Instead of dumping us at the hotel he took us for a tour of Juneau. That first tour is still a strong memory - we were tired, the cloud ceiling was probably 12 feet with drizzle, his Subaru smelled like fish and feet, and I came away with the distinct impression that this man loved Alaska at that moment I did not understand how.
Three years later, at the end of my tour, I cried when we left. Much of what Captain Hartman taught me about Alaska is in this book - all told a pretty good job, for an aviator.

January 22, - Published on Amazon. Fascinating book. A lot like sitting over a drink with an old friend hearing interesting stories about fascinating places and events. I read it on my Kindle and my only complaint is the number of typos. A minor point, but the difference between five and four stars.

My favorite thing about this book is that the author's love of the subject matter was very apparent throughout the book. It is informative and full of interesting stories, and covers many different aspects of the Coast Guard's mission in Alaska as well as its history. As someone reading for pleasure, I ended up skipping some of the maritime history portions, but I very much enjoyed the anecdotes one for each aspect of the Coast Guard's mission, more or less and assorted facts.
