This is the strange but true story of Wild Bill Cooper (the former owner of the Squirrel Cage Bar). Part Arctic adventure and part crime caper, WILD BILL’S RUN is an unforgettable ride with a true American folk hero.
They didn’t quite make it.
After the expedition returned home, Cooper embarked on a startling new adventure. Accused of leading a massive drug smuggling operation known as “the Marijuana Air Force,” he was named one of America’s Ten Most Wanted by the U.S. Marshals Service. But the wily outdoorsman was never caught. He refused to surrender to the law, just as he’d refused to surrender to the Arctic. Even today, his whereabouts remain a mystery.
