Loved that book! Recommended if you like (or love aviation). A great insight into bush flying of the earlier days. Canadian aviation history over view.

Danielle Metcalfe-Chenail has written an excellent telling of Laurentian Air Service's history. This is not a tired old history book, but instead is filled with wonderful tales from many employees and people associated with the company during it's entire lineage. Anyone interested in aviation, bush flying, or just Canadian history should read this book.

I now make Southwest Houston, TX my home. When I'm not researching, writing, teaching, and working
