“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

THE NETHERLANDS: ”Captain Auxier writes relaxed, with humour and true passion for Alaska. Through his writing style, you almost literally crawl in the jacket (and the airplane) of the central persons. And that is simply delicious.”—Aviation Book Reviews (aviationbookreviews.com)
