Kodiak's hunt for a killer is aided by a reluctant witness — an old Eskimo intent on dying ceremoniously like his ancestors. Clint Walker stars as Kodlak, an officer of the Alaska State Patrol In "Red Snow, White Death," Kodiak comes upon a plane crash in
mountain country. Benton, the pilot, has been fatally shot and robbed of $8O.OOO he was transporting for the Bank of Anchorage. A witness is Abraham Lincoln Imhook, an elderly Eskimo who thinks he no longer has a reason to live, and is reluctant to leave the mountain. Kodiak prevails upon him to join in the search for the murderer. Imhook's description of the murderer fits that of Frank James, the brother of bush pilot Helen James, who operates the one-plane local airline. Kodiak and Imhook trace the fugitive to a mine near Helen's landing strip where Frank, seizing Imhook as a
hostage, holds Kodiak off with dynamite. Abner Biberman appears as Abraham Lincoln Imhook, Stefanie Powers guest stars as Helen James, and Jess Morris as Frank James.
