A must for any pilot who has flown, or dreams about flying the Alaska Highway, this book uncovers unusual stories about each airport, from Dawson Creek to Fairbanks, and covers the Russian Lendlease. There is a chapter on the B-26 bombers that crash landed in the Million Dollar Valley in World War II, including exclusive photos of a survivor and his rebuilt bomber.

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.Was this review helpful?
