Hammond served as a Marine fighter pilot during World War II, then fled civilization for Alaska's wilderness, where he became a trapper, bush pilot, wolf hunter, commercial fisherman, wilderness guide, and poet. He was governor of Alaska between 1974 and 1982, an environmentalist during the nation's oil crisis. His memoirs are lively and engaging.
