Chase Alaska Lives

"Jungle" Bob Durr came out with the second half of his memoir without my notice until now. My account in 1976 in Alaska Tales about my journey to his homestead community of Chase near Talkeetna is worth a look and so is the professor's here.

I found the Durr's to be arrogant and not particularly open to new settlers. It would have been different had I came with the girlfriend as I later did, but who knows? In the bush, as in town, the ones with the most money do the best and it's just as evident. Class warfare exists everywhere.
