Bush Pilots

by Peter Boer | 23 July 2004
PAPERBACK
Category: General History
Synopsis
It takes a special recipe--one part courage, one part skill, a big dash of crazy--to make a bush pilot. These unique aviators, flying over the vast wildernesses of the United States, Canada and Australia, often reach the status of legends. In this book, Peter Boer looks at famous Canadian bush pilots, many of them former fighter pilots of the Second World War. These brave young men and women took to the skies to bring food, medicines and mail to isolated Canadian communities. The names of men such as Wop May and Punch Dickins are synonymous with courage in the face of hardship. The remarkable stories of May and Dickins, as well as those of Doc Oaks, Fred Stevenson, James Caldwell, Chuck McAvoy, Vi Milstead, Con Farrell and many others, are told in this entertaining collection.
