Fresh out of college, I reported and wrote arts and entertainment articles for two community newspapers in Baltimore. After moving to Alaska, I wrote articles on wildlife and other outdoor subjects for Audubon, Defenders of Wildlife, Margin and Alaska magazines, and produced an environmental organization’s newsletter. Here are some excerpts and photos.


Living in Alaska, I got interested in an Alaska pioneer and bear expert named Allen Hasselborg. I spent two years researching a biography of him on several grants, traveling to museums and libraries and interviewing sources in 12 states.  The University of Alaska Press published “Bear Man of Admiralty Island” in 1996.

If you want to buy a copy on Amazon, I highly recommend you only buy a used copy (preferably in “good” or “excellent” condition), which will increase the odds that you’ll get a copy from the original (1996), high-quality offset printing of the book. If you order a “new” copy on Amazon now, you’ll get a second edition, on-demand, digital version with low quality (dark, blurry) photo reproductions. Ditto, presumably, if you buy from a bookstore in Alaska or order directly from the University of Alaska Press – you’ll probably get the new, lower-quality, digital version.
