Sitka Snow: The Adventures of Alaska’s Police Chief Snow and Lilly

Sitka Snow chronicles the continuing adventures of Police Chief Brady Snow, who works in the bush of wild Alaska, where human trafficking, bootlegging, petty and violent crimes, and dealing with bears and other wildlife all come under his jurisdiction. Combining the antics of a quirky, hard-scrabble community on the edge of civilization with historical details and insightful views of the Native lifestyle and mysticism, Sitka Snow is a realistic, stark, and funny look at the life of a police officer and the unique existence of people living off the grid in rugged Alaska. Join Chief Brady, his girlfriend Lilly, local villager Frank N Beans, some larger-than-life, hard-drinking bush pilots, and a host of other fascinating characters on an adventure you can really sink your teeth into.
