Intrigue of Flying into the Unknown

The book is a jewel and must read for all aviation enthusiasts. It also covers a vast rich history of Alaskan wilderness rural life in the middle to late 20th century. Rudy aquaints the reader with many early aviation pioneers and insite to the contributions for the war effort the civilian pilots made during WWII in Alaska. When starting to read this great true life adventure, prepare yourself for first class entertainment and a view into a segment of interesting recent American History. Grif Hamilton

A true life adventure that only a few will ever experience

Very entertaining story about a man and his desire to go in the opposite direction of the trend and experience his life as he wants to. This is a chance for the rest of us to get a taste of what it must be like to step into a life that our fears would otherwise keep us from ever doing. The courage of men like Rudy Billberg, help humankind to push the envelope of the human experience and continue the pushing for new challenges.

I felt as though I was sitting in the cockpit with Rudy

Rudy Billberg's experiences from from barnstorming to bush piloting as told to Jim Rearden portray a uniquely rich and exciting era of American history. I felt as though I was riding in the cockpit with Rudy buzzing everything from golden wheat fields in the midwest to brave grizzly bears in the Yukon. Bill Rohovit (
