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." llustrated 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.
