Arctic Bush Pilot
Arctic Bush Pilot From Navy Combat to Flying Alaska's Northern Wilderness

Co-Author - James "Andy" Anderson Co-Author - Jim Rearden

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."

Illustrated 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.

"I've never read a book that so skillfully puts the reader into a bush pilot's head and so compellingly captures the drama, adventure, and misadventure of Arctic flying."
     --Cliff Cernick, Flyer magazine

"I'd have died of pneumonia one winter if Andy Anderson hadn't flown me from Huslia to the Tanana Hospital in rotten weather."
     --Sidney Huntington, Galena, Alaska

"There are both amusing and heartbreaking anecdotes, and never a dull moment. This book captures the essence of Alaska and the reader's imagination. This is recommended reading material for all aviation enthusiasts--especially for those who dream of experiencing the challenges of a bush pilot."
     --Judy Whitson, Private Pilot magazine
