He never imagined that during the 1950s and 60s hed fly with other legendary bush pilots, such as Babe Alsworth, Andy Anderson, Fred and John Chambers, Don Sheldon, Don Stickman, and Noel Wien.

Or that hed be counted among the early Alaska physicians in Interior Alaska. Fasten your seatbelt for Bush flying crack-ups, fly-in house calls in 50-below temperatures, hunting adventures, and a psychotic woman climbing out of his small Piper aircraft, 2,000 feet above the Yukon River. Pack your sense of humor for a monkey in Docs clinic waiting room, misjudged bush landings, delivering a baby during the 1964 Good Friday Earthquake, and more. Take it from one who has experienced the silence of an engine out-of-fuel at 2,500 feet, Doc really had courage! Flying a tube and fabric two seat J-3 Cub without radios in the ever-changing weather of Alaska brings the hairs up on the back of any pilots neck.

The stories were real and accurate down to the details. Being a daddy, doctor, dentist, and vet, not to mention a fierce big game hunter, added to the drama. Steve Kriss, Colonel, USAF (Ret) Aircarft Owner- Instrument Pilot- A&P Mechanic in Plano, TX
