It is also an attempt to define by example his belief in the phenomenon of luck-- that the pattern of anyone's fate is only partly contrived by the individual".--The New Yorker.

In 1948, then newcomer James "Andy" Anderson, started his career as an arctic bush pilot with a sense of adventure and a year-old Taylorcraft plane with no starter, no generator and no battery. He didn't know he'd become a pioneer. Anderson went on to establish a post-World War II bush service to Alaska's vast Koyukuk River region, backed by Wien Airlines. After seventeen years and more than 32,000 hours of flight time, Anderson offers a unique and historic view of living and flying in Alaska. Arctic Bush Pilot captures the spirit of Alaska and her hearty people while capturing the drama and adventure of Arctic flying, all from the historic perspective of this pioneering pilot.
