Imagine flying through wildly unpredictable weather conditions and over the unforgiving terrain of the Big Empty, with only yourself to rely on in life and death situations. This type of true grit adventure was a common occurrence for Alaska bush pilot Mort Mason, who encountered numerous white-knuckle situations while honing his skill--and his luck--in a profession that only a handful of pilots have had the stamina to endure. Flying the Alaska Wild is a heart-pounding, edge-of-the-chair collection of fascinating stories about the rough-and-tumble life of an Alaska bush pilot--straight from the pilot’s seat. Recounting thirty years of adventures, skilled storyteller Mason presents tales of his own experiences, and also tells the legendary stories of other old-time bush pilots.

Mort Mason has written about Alaska hunting, sport fishing, and backcountry flying for more than twenty-five years. Mason flew for 18,000 plus hours in the formidable and unforgiving outback of the Alaska bush country. He and his wife, Peggy, started the successful periodical Alaska Outdoors. His first book, Flying the Alaska Wild, has become a favorite among pilots and non-pilots alike. Although he is semiretired, Mason occasionally tows banners along the golden beaches of the Atlantic Ocean.
