Final Frontiersman by James Campbell

Book Description

Hundreds of hardy people have tried to carve out a living in the Alaskan bush, but few have succeeded as consistently as Heimo Korth. In The Final Frontiersman, Heimo's cousin James Campbell chronicles Korth's amazing life and adventures, creating a powerful, real-life epic of triumph and tragedy. Campbell spent two years witnessing firsthand the Korth family: Heimo, his wife Edna and their teenage daughters Rhonda and Krin. With impressive detail, the author recounts an everyday existence shaped by a harsh and unforgiving country. In their efforts to preserve the ecology of the land, the Korths lead a nomadic life, waiting patiently for the odd small plane to bring supplies and cultivating hard-earned hunting skills that are all that stand between them and lingering death. By turns inspiring and downright jolting, THE FINAL FRONTIERSMAN reads like a rustic version of the American Dream, in which the physical barriers of a stunning wilderness are no obstacle to forging a life outside of the mainstream.

Books By Author James Campbell

Shepard's War by James Campbell Shepard's War, Hardback (October 2015)

Shepard's War is an intimate, illustrated narrative of the First World War seen through the mainly unpublished work of E. H. Shepard, who served as a frontline officer from 1915 to the end of the war.

Oscar Wilde, Wilfred Owen, and Male Desire by James Campbell Oscar Wilde, Wilfred Owen, and Male Desire, Hardback (September 2015)

This book reads Oscar Wilde as a queer theorist and Wilfred Owen as his symbolic son. It centers on the concept of 'male procreation', or the generation of new ideas through an erotic but non-physical connection between two men, and it sees Owen as both a product and a continuation of this Wildean tradition.
