About Larry Kaniut
Log cabin. Snowed in. Pregnant young woman. Deer Park, Washington. Baby boy. I joined my sister Laura and our parents. A year later Lana completed our family.
Mother built Liberty ships and B-29 bulkheads for bombers at Boeing.
I attended grade schools throughout the state of Washington, spent high school immersed in football, trampoline, badminton, the school newspaper, yearbook, drama and student government, graduating in 1960.
I met Pamela Timmons at Warner Pacific College, asked her to marry me and we wed in Newberg, Oregon, August 28, 1964, a year before I graduated from Linfield College in McMinnville, Oregon.
In 1966 we drove the Alcan to Anchorage, Alaska, where I taught and coached at A.J. Dimond High. From 1968 to 1973 we had three children.
Five publishers asked me to write. Our books now number 13, the most recent being Brachan, Trapped and SAFE with Bears.
Construction, outdoor activities, becoming a pilot and building our Super Cub occupied my spare time.

Alaska is like no other state and few countries; men experience greater risk in her arms. This one-of-a-kind anthology captures the spine tingling adventures of daring men and women who venture into Alaska's vast wilderness and look death in the eye. Danger Stalks the Land relates gripping episodes of animal attacks, avalanches, aircraft disasters, fishing, hunting, and skiing accidents, and chronicles risky climbs and reckless mountaineering amid Alaska's fantastic peaks. Through exhaustive research and interviews, author Larry Kaniut has captured in one volume, the terror and beauty of man's attempt to explore a vast and unforgiving land.
