This home movie contains footage from an Alaskan hunting trip with intertitles describing different locations and events. Also included are shots of Harper and hunting companions field dressing a bear after a hunt.

Born in Yorktown, Texas in 1901, Albert Morris "A.M." Harper was a longtime resident of Alice where he owned and operated a successful oil field trucking company. Financial success followed from the early boom in the Texas oil industry and enabled Harper to enjoy a recreational home in Port Aransas and many adventurous pursuits, including safari expeditions in Africa and Alaska.
