Book Name : Archie Ferguson (Alaska's Clown Prince and “Craziest Pilot in the World")

Archie Ferguson is the last of the original fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants Alaska bush pilots to be the subject of a biography. Dubbed “Alaska’s Clown Prince”,  he added many hilarious chapters to Alaska’s history. He is also the originator of the \”Arctic Bump,\” current practice of airline pilots who give a blast of power as they fly over the Arctic Circle to provide gullible tourists the impression that the air north of the Arctic Circle is different than air south of the Arctic Circle. His title,  “the Craziest Pilot in the World”, was given to him by The Saturday Evening Post in its December 1945 issue. Ferguson, who died in 1967, was an excellent example of the colorful character/con men who made Alaska what it is today.”

Author Tag Line : Master Of The Impossible Crime

Steven Levi is the author of more than 100 books, half of them on Alaska. His subject matter includes humor, scholarly history, and impossible crimes. An impossible crime is one where the detective has to figure out HOW the crime was committed before he can go after the perpetrators. For Alaska history, he specializes in scholarly research to make sure what he writes is based on the facts. For example, his book on Archie Ferguson is based on more than 20 years of research, almost 100 interviews, and the reading of every newspaper which covered Ferguson's colorful career. This work is significant for the historian because it catalogs the transition of a frontier community to a community as the 'fences of civilization' were being constructed.
