“Paul Steucke’s Burbia Man is an engaging recollection of his adult life as a loyal civil servant, incredibly talented artist and dedicated family man. His unique life experience… hardships, challenges and accomplishments, are presented with humor and insight. You will find yourself reminiscing about the ‘good ole days’ along with him. Enjoy the journey. I did. George Fisher, Retired Special Agent, FBI.

Volume two of Steucke’s memoir, Burbia Man, combines stories about family, love and work, which as in life, are intertwined chronologically, weaving from one to the other and back again, the emphasis being on his career as a civil servant for the United States government. His brother, ”Wally, who worked 32 years for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, also provides an additional perspective in the introduction.

The numerous illustrations throughout the book not only provide an interesting and appropriate display of the authors talent as an artist and photographer, but also document historical moments, especially the creation of the Alaska oil pipeline, the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act, the proposed Alaska natural gas pipeline, and his employment with the Federal Aviation Administration (and the KAL UFO incident).
