Would you want to walk in the footprints of the author? Have you faced and killed a charging brown bear in Alaska bear country? Do you know the feeling of being sucked into the propeller of a three-story cruise ship as you check your crab trap in a fourteen-foot forty-horsepower skiff? Did you ever fear you would die on your birthday? Daniel Luckow did. He inched his way on a twelve-inch path across ice cliffs around two/three hundred feet wide with a two-hundred-feet drop-off. His clothes were soaking wet, and it was January in Alaska.
Daniel Luckow survived being a bear's dinner, being chewed up by a cruise ship's propeller, hypothermia from walking across frozen cliffs, and much more in the Alaskan wilderness only to find himself facing the greatest challenge of all: being imprisoned for a crime he did not commit.
This is one man's story of a journey no human wants to travel on—to go from awesome beauty to nightmare and know who got away with the nightmare. The State of Alaska court system is a sad part of the story. The triumph is that the author survived all the injustice and lived to say, “They didn't win! I'm alive and at peace with my soul.”
