The men who brought airplanes to Alaskas Panhandle were a different breed; a little braver than the average pilot and blessed with the particular skills and set of nerves it requires to fly float planes, those Lockheed Vegas made of plywood that were held together by termites holding hands, as well as the sturdy Fairchild 71s and Bellanca Pacemakers.This book was the first one written about these men and their flying machines and it has been a classic since first published in 1969.
