By A Customer on May 16, 2000
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.

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.

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.

Format: Hardcover
I must admit, I have a sentimental affinity for this book, as photos of several of my buddies and former airline's photos are in here (Wings of Alaska).

My short summer stint as a young Alaska bush pilot changed my life, jumpstarted my flying career and inspired my novel, The Last Bush Pilots, which made Amazon's Top 100 "Breakthrough Novel awards." This book, by presenting the sheer beauty and grandeur of and from Alaska's skies, helps to explain why Alaska is such a breathtaking inspiration for so many souls.

Filled with stunning full-color aerial photos, this is the perfect coffee table book for the aviation or Alaska aficionado alike. Worth the expense--you won't be disappointed!

I'm not a "verified purchase," as I bought this the moment it came out—before Amazon existed!
