Joe Henderson

In 1992, when he was interviewed, Joe Henderson had recently restored and re-opened the general store in Wiseman. Joe first was a logger in southeast Alaska, and after moving north to Wiseman became a dog musher. He started Sourdough Outfitters in 1988 and 1989 to provide dog mushing tours in the Brooks Range. He also had some of his dogs used in the 1991 Walt Disney film, "White Fang." He has done numerous long-distance wilderness trips around Alaska with his dog team.
