Overview

Readers of Flying the Alaska Wild marveled at Mort Mason’s true tales of braving the elements at the extremes in a Piper Super Cub. But the bush pilot, adventurer, and raconteur was just beginning, and in this book he revisits his most memorable moments of flying by the seat of his pants through blizzards and white-outs, on assignments at times hazardous and sometimes simply whacky, always with a sense of humor and due respect for the limitless wilds of Alaska beneath his wings. The world of a bush pilot really is the final frontier, and for thirty years Mort Mason was there, clocking enough heart-stopping miles to make most life-stories utterly incredible. In The Alaska Bush Pilot Chronicles Mason recounts more of his unlikely adventures in the face of Alaska’s unforgiving weather and terrain. His stories gives readers the rare chance to experience the disappearing thrills and challenges of meeting the American frontier on its own unyielding terms.

Meet the Author

Mort Mason has written about Alaska hunting, sport fishing, and backcountry flying for more than twenty-five years. Mason flew for 18,000 plus hours in the formidable and unforgiving outback of the Alaska bush country. He and his wife, Peggy, started the successful periodical Alaska Outdoors. His first book, Flying the Alaska Wild, has become a favorite among pilots and non-pilots alike. Although he is semiretired, Mason occasionally tows banners along the golden beaches of the Atlantic Ocean.

    Northern 'outback'

    It's Mort Mason again! He reveals the true dilemmas that face the seat-of-the-pants experiences in an unpredictable frontier. It's a reflection of the good old days when we could be what our passion dictated instead of what money, connections and outside influences forced us to do out of practicality.
