“TOP 100 MAINSTREAM FICTION 2013″
—AMAZON.COM Breakthrough Novel Awards
“The age-old expression, ‘There are old pilots and bold pilots, but no old, bold pilots’ is recalled through falling skies, lethal box canyons, and the dreaded ‘cumulo-granite‘. Nature’s harsh lessons are delivered to even the most seasoned bush pilots at Southeast Alaska Seaplanes, where a rich assortment of supporting characters each have their own, sometimes secret, reasons for making Alaska home. You won’t want to put it down while the midnight sun still shines!”—Airways Magazine, October, 2013
“Captain Auxier takes you into another world—one that he has lived. The place where pilots are born, and many have died. ”—Karlene Petitt, Flight For Control; Flight For Safety
