...autobiography of the author's experiences as a bush pilot in the Alaskan wilderness. As such it deals mostly with the authors experiences with the people and environment of northern Alaska.
Backed by Wien Airlines, former Navy combat pilot "Andy" Anderson pioneered post-World War II bush service to Alaska's vast Koyokuk River region serving miners, Natives, sportsmen, geologists, adventurers, and assorted bush rats. He flew mining equipment, gold, live wolves and sled dogs, you name it--anything needed for life in the bush. He sweated out dozens of dangerous medical-emergency flights, "always at night and in terrible storms." Illustrated with 50 historical photos and co-authored by one of Alaska's most popular writers, Arctic Bush Pilot is an exciting and sometimes nostalgic account of a pioneer pilot and his special place in Alaska aviation history.

A great look at the early age of bush pilot adventures in Alaska. "Andy" Anderson was one of the pilots who really opened up areas previously only served by river boats & sled teams, back when it took real guts, a good deal of wilderness survival knowledge & a "can do" attitude to make a living flying at sub-zero temperatures.
