It takes a special recipe--one part courage, one part skill, a big dash of crazy--to make a bush pilot. These unique aviators, flying over the vast wildernesses of the United States, Canada and Australia, often reach the status of legends. In this Canadian bestseller, Peter Boer looks at famous bush pilots, many of them former fighter pilots of the Second World War.

Peter is a graduate of the journalism program at Concordia University in Montreal, and he has a degree in psychology from the University of Alberta. He has a dozen other books to his credit ...
