    If you ever wanted to know anything about the early days of flying above the Arctic Circle, this book will certainly enlighten you. It was incredibly difficult to navigate an airplane through largely unmapped territory in difficult weather and rough, unforgiving terrain. Helmericks talks not only about his own experiences but the experiences of many of the most talented bush pilots prior to 1966. He details chapters on close calls, trapping and fishing, mechanics, local natives, and much more.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and learned a lot about what it takes to keep an airplane going between 1919 and the 1960's. These men are certainly pioneers, durable, tough, courageous, and dedicated to their love of flying.
