Wilderness Adventure Book Review: Alone in the Fortress of the Bears: 70 Days Surviving Wilderness Alaska

Bruce “Buck” Nelson’s new book  “Alone in the Fortress of the Bears: 70 Days Surviving Wilderness Alaska: Foraging, Fishing, Hunting” is a must read. 

Bruce “Buck” Nelson is not a stranger to Alaska or adventure. The author lives on the outskirts of Fairbanks in a log cabin, and presses himself deep into the wilderness for pure adventure anywhere he can.

Many of us dream of a similar sense of adventure. Buck Nelson makes his a reality on Admiralty Island in the heart of Southeastern Alaskan rain forest brown bear habitat. It’s the basis of his new book, “Alone in the Fortress of the Bears: 70 Days Surviving Wilderness Alaska.”

This book is jammed packed with fantastic stories and very useful information for the outdoor adventurer. The reader even gets to join Buck for a meal of fresh caught ocean crab and fish (well, at least through the pages they do).

Owners of the book can follow him in his inflatable kayak on the search for delicious seafood, fishing spots and wilderness adventures. They’ll also be by his side when the brown bears get too close for comfort.

Nelson got to step foot in the wilds where very few have ever trekked. His brilliant writing style will make you feel like you are actually there.

There is no better way to experience the Alaskan wilds from an armchair than to read this epic adventure from start to finish. This book is just impossible to put down.

If you’d like to order a copy of “Alone in the Fortress of the Bears: 70 Days Surviving Wilderness Alaska: Foraging, Fishing, Hunting,” you can find it on Amazon. Make sure to buy one for a friend or family member, too.

It just might turn them into a wilderness adventurer as well.
