Being a bush pilot in Alaska means more than just flying. It means living a life full of adventure! Do real adventures only exist in our imaginations? Not if you’re Donald R. Lee. His fill the air. Don Lee is a legendary Alaska bush pilot. This book shares the rich stories of his life as told to the author: from Don’s days as a gofer and air taxi pilot to his ultimate success as an owner of a flight school. Whether about glacier landings in the Denali massif, challenging rescue missions or living through a crash, Don’s exploits will both amaze and entertain readers. There’s nowhere else in the world quite like Alaska, a place where pilots can be flying on a rescue mission one minute and in the next hope to be rescued themselves. But this is precisely the high-wire act that bush pilots in Alaska perform every time they take to the air. Christoph Barszczewski portrays the life of a remarkable person, one who finds his passion in the world of flying and his fulfillment in living a life in the rugged wilderness of the north.
