Overview

This book is about sixteen extraordinary bush planes that can be found in Canada's aviation museums. It is also a celebration of some of the greatest moments in Canadian history, when daring young pilots defied incredible odds to open up some of the nation's most remote regions to the outside world.

Each bush plane is profiled individually, accompanied by historical and contemporary visuals and colour artwork. Author Dan McCaffery highlights a diverse spectrum of planes from the pioneer era to the modern day.

McCaffery also celebrates the pilots who flew the planes, people like World War I ace "Wop" May, who used his bush plane to hunt down Albert Johnson, the infamous Mad Trapper of Rat River; Russ Baker, who performed a death-defying rescue of two dozen airmen stranded in a storm on a mountainside near the Alaska-Yukon border; and Jack Hunter, who used his Fairchild to track down rumrunners off the cost of New Brunswick. This is an attractive book that will appeal to anyone interested in reading about adventure or aviation history.

DAN McCAFFERY is one of Canada's most successful military aviation history writers. He was born in Sarnia, Ontario, where he graduated from the the Journalism Program at Lambton College of Applied Arts and Technology. He worked for the Sarnia Gazette, a weekly newspaper, from 1974 to 1989 as a reporter and later as editor. Since 1989 he has worked at the daily newspaper the Sarnia Observer where he is currently the assignment editor. He has won three Canadian News Awards, two Ontario News Awards and a Western Ontario News Award.

He is the author of Hell Island: Canadian Pilots and the 1942 Air Battle for Malta, Billy Bishop: Canadian Hero, AirAces, Battlefields in the Air, Canadian Warplanes and Bush Planes and Bush Pilots. McCaffery and his wife Val have been married for 28 years.
