The Spirit of Alaska Airlines

This is the history of Alaska’s last legacy airline, Alaska Airlines, which transformed from a single-aircraft bush operator in 1932 to a major U.S. carrier serving a presentday network stretching from Barrow to Zihuatanejo and Boston to Honolulu. Character & Characters chronicles the unusual stories and colorful people behind this uncommonly independent airline.

Character & Characters captures aviation history in Alaska for those who love the flying machines, and, more important, it captures the spirit of Alaska Airlines for those who admire people
    --Dr. Bonnie Dunbar, president of The Museum of Flight

"Character & Characters" redefines the genre of airline histories. It is quite literally the only corporate biography worthy of an entire night in front of the fireplace. You'll close the book wanting more!
