Tales of a Catskinner, by Chester Russell

3.99 USD
Chester Russell tells the amazing story of how he--and 14,000 other soldiers just like him--ended up working under god-awful conditions in the wilds of western Canada and Alaska to build the Alaska Highway and the CANOL Project during the early years of WWII. As a catskinner, in a company of the 35th engineers, Russell saw as many facets of the building as anyone. If you like your history up close and personal then this is the book for you.
