Book - 1955
Rate this:

"Punch" Dickins, "Doc" Oaks, "The Black Gang," "Wop"May-the names of Canada's early bush pilots are almost as colourful as the stories of their adventures in the northern skies. Their tales of mercy flights, searches for lost men and planes, the pioneering of Arctic air mail, the conquering of the dread Barren Lands, and the thrilling capture of the Mad Trapper of Rat River are told in vivid detail by Arctic Explorer Philip Godsell.

Originally published in 1955, Pilots of the Purple Twilight is a classic book of aviation history that has been unavailable for years. It captures the excitement, ingenuity, and occasional recklessness of the pioneer bush pilots who helped open Canada's North.
