A book all pilots should have

Gordon Baxter was a word merchant with a "voice" truly his own and a style so clear and orginal that it could never be mistaken for that of another author. Often touching, frequently screamingly funny and always wonderful to read, these were, at least mostly, originally published as columns in Flying Magazine. If you love aviation, it is likely that you will greatly enjoy this.

For light aircraft enthusiasts.

A book clearly written by a man who loves light aircraft and the joy of flying them. Those who are similarly inclined will enjoy, and probably learn from, the stories and anecdotes presented with a masterful and often humorous turn of phrase. The author has a unique writing style which can amuse or amaze. As an aside, those who aspire to write could learn much fron this book. The author is an expert wordsmith.

I almost knew him

How do I describe the inital collection of the best of Baxter? I first obtained mine direct from Bax himself and I have a nice note in his own hand. Regardless, if you like Bax Seat over the years, this is one to get, keep, and re-read occaisionally. His stories about the 'houn Dog' and his Mooney stories, learning to fly IFR, stearmans, night fright, and all the other classics will keep you warm and aloft in the coldest of 0/0 weather. We'll miss you Bax.
