Russell “Rusty” Annabel (1904-1979) was known as one of the greatest outdoor writers of his time, having the unique ability to tell a hair raising adventure tale like no other. Unfortunately, much of his stories were likely more fiction than truth, with much exaggeration of the facts, according to many. Annabel was born in Tacoma, Washington but had long dreamed of moving to Alaska, and soon made his way north to the frontier. He lived off the land – fishing, hunting, guiding and trapping while writing numerous articles for sporting magazines of the day.
