For more than 80 years, bush pilots have carried supplies, delivered mail, and transported emergency personnel over Alaska’s rugged terrain. They’ve flown with felons handcuffed to the seat, with corpses strapped to the wing, and with drugged polar bears sleeping in the cargo compartment. Ever since aviation came to Alaska planes have been far more important than cars or truck to the residents of the far-flung bush communities. In Cowboys of the Sky: The Story of Alaska’s Bush Pilots, humorist and historian Steve Levi takes you on a wild ride through the heyday of aviation in Alaska, from the golden years, before federal regulations curbed the more dangerous and outlandish flying practices, all the way to the present. Through photographs and anecdotes, you’ll meet brave and colorful pilots, the true cowboys of the sky who carved the face of America’s Last Frontier.
