Wild Man Is Said To Rule Unexplored Empire.
Anchorage, Alaska.
Charles J. Dumbolton.
Out of the isolated district north of Bristol Bay comes a tale of the Wild Man of the Nushagak – a nebulous terror jealously guarding an empire which, even on the larger maps, is an unexplored white patch with dotted lines for streams.
Charles J. Dumbolton, sourdough prospector of many years in Yukon and Klondike valley camps, told the story today after arriving by plane from a season of prospecting 125 miles from the nearest settlement.
The wild man is believed in so firmly, by the few men in the area, that they have drawn a voluntary boundary to their northern trips. And, while he made no effort to investigate the wild man’s authenticity, Dumbolton said he found trappers feared to venture beyond their own established frontier, the King Salmon River.
He said the wild man, perhaps some creature crazed by loneliness, has been reported seen several times, and is blamed for the disappearance of several men who have ventured into the region of the Upper Nushagak and its tributaries the past several seasons.
The wild man’s empire is a vast region between the south flowing Upper Nushagak and the west-ward flowing middle course of the Kuskokwim.
In the early days of the Klondike gold rush, sourdoughs remember Dumbolton drove in herds of cattle over the Dalton Trail, from Haines to Selkirk, slaughtering them at Selkirk and rafting the beef down to Dawson.
Later he turned to mining, taking hundreds of thousands of dollars in gold. He’s still pursuing that will-o-the-wisp of prospectors-luck and the luring nuggets.
