For some an enigma, for others a way of life, for most only a dream, but for a high time ex-USAF helicopter pilot who thought he knew it all, it was the experience of a lifetime. A time and perspective that was totally unlike American aviation today.
To be sure, that “can-do” attitude still exists in Alaska, albeit with its share of “be-no's” and “what if’s”...but imagine a time when the only restrictions to aerial operations were self-imposed. One weighs the odds, takes one’s chances and, as Alaskans like to say, “Sometimes you eat the bear, and sometimes the bear eats you.”
156 pages in length, ...And Sometimes The Bear Eats You: Tempting Fate On A Magic Carpet A Helicopter Pilot's Odyssey In Alaska is being aggressively promoted to appropriate markets with a focus on the Pacific West United States travel (AK, CA, HI, NV, OR, WA) category. With U.S. wholesale distribution through Ingram and Baker & Taylor, and pervasive online availability through Amazon, Barnes & Noble and elsewhere, ...And Sometimes The Bear Eats You meets consumer demand through both retail and library markets with a suggested retail price of $11.95.
