How Not to Die Hunting in Alaska

Ron & Owen

I had to name this show after Ron Smith’s provocative book title. Ron has authored three books since he retired as zoology professor emeritus from the University of Alaska Fairbanks. One is a no-fooling-around natural history of Interior and Northern Alaska; another is a thinly veiled autobiographical novel about coming of age in the SW, United States; and the last volume is a whimsical but very practical work devoted preventing some of the memorable mishaps Ron and his hunting buddies have met in the wild. As you’ll hear, Ron is a passionate storyteller who takes his science seriously.
