In Alaska, there are many wild creatures (bears, beavers, wolves, eagles, leopard seals, killer whales, moose, caribou and Sasquatch) that would be happy to eat a dog for lunch. But what about an Øverassen TV-2200 snow blower?
There's not much reason for Buck to live. At age 84, he lives alone in a decaying shack, a desiccated garden his only scenery. His mother, Big Mike, Doc Holliday and his beloved Tiger are all gone. Is this the end?
Buck Henry, trying to enjoy a beer with his best friend Tiger the cat, faces down the dreaded Dorland Gang in Big Mike's Saloon. He's outsized, outgunned, outrun but not...outsmarted.
Sir Clements Robert MarkhamKCBFRS (20 July 1830 – 30 January 1916) was an English geographer, explorer, and writer. He was secretary of the Royal Geographical Society (RGS) between 1863 and 1888, and later served as the Society's president for a further 12 years. In the latter capacity he was mainly responsible for organising the National Antarctic Expedition of 1901–04, and for launching the polar career of Robert Falcon Scott.
Markham was a prolific writer and diarist; his first published work, an account of his voyage with HMS Assistance in search of Franklin, had appeared in 1853. After his retirement from the India office in 1877 writing became his chief source of income. In addition to papers and reports for the Royal Geographical Society and other learned bodies, Markham wrote histories, biographies and travel accounts, many as full-length books. He also translated many works from Spanish to English, and compiled a grammar and dictionary for the Quichua language of Peru.
