    Fabulous Photography

    The history is brought alive by the inclusion of the lore and legend of North Country flyers. The photography is a sheer delight whether contemporary color shots or fascinating archival black and whites. One comes to understand the influence of air transport upon the development and history of the highway. A must for all who have flown in the North Country.
