Hard Way Back is one man’s true story of political corruption in Alaska and New Zealand, revealing why he was chased across the globe by a U.S. Special Agent and jailed in a foreign country. The author untiringly perseveres through his ordeals and emerges, battlescarred but victorious, at peace with himself, his life, and God.

This riveting autobiography chronicles accomplished outdoor enthusiast and succesful adventure guide Kent Kaiser’s grueling three-year odyssey through a gauntlet of corrupt legal systems, romance and betrayal, spiritual soul-searching and recommitment. Kaiser endures trumped up charges in two nations, carrying potential penalties of 45 years in prison and over $2 million in fines in the U.S., and seven years and $100,000 in New Zealand.

Relentlessly pressed from all sides, Kaiser witnesses the strong and steady hand of God light the path to his ultimate freedom. Hard Way Back comprises a small library in one action-packed book. Within its pages, the reader will find:

  • heart-stopping adventure tales, including a terrifying Kodiak brown bear attack
  • a hard-hitting documentary of political and judicial intrigue
  • a poignant account of a storybook romance and marriage torn apart by Kaiser’s persecutors
  • heart-warming stories about some of Kaiser’s favorite adventure trips
  • a travelogue describing some of the most breathtaking geography on earth, including many magnificent photographs
  • and above all, an inspiring spiritual journey
