Format: Hardcover
This is a wonderful compilation of photographs centered around flying in bush Alaska. Anyone who has lived or travelled off the beaten path in the far north knows how essential airplanes are for travel and life in the 49th state. While the essays in the book tend to be a little sappy and trite, the beautiful photographs more than compensate as the reader is shown the beauty of Alaska from the perspective of bush planes.

Format: Hardcover
This is an incredible collections of aviation photos from the north country. Ground to ground as well as air to air and air to ground pictures fill this large coffee-table book. There are not just 3 or 4 great pictures, the book is full of them.

Worth every penny for those who want to gasp at stunning mountain views and shake your head with envy at the close-us of the hard working bush planes.

Truely a pilot's book, but my wife even enjoys looking at it with me.

For those who love flying, and are intrigued about the dangerous lives those who fly the bush live, this is an excellent representation of their equipment and the unsual lives they live as pilots in rugged, dangerous & stunningly beautiful country.

This book arrived in excellent condition. It had been well-packed, and was sent in a timely manner. I would definitely buy from this seller again.

I was working for Wings of Alaska when Fred made this book. We had great fun! The book is a must have for every coffee table in Alaska and the lower forty-eight as well. A must for every private pilot!! Awesome book, thanks Fred!
