I have been a voracious reader for my entire life. I love science fiction, military, mystery, horror and obviously anything aviation. I also love true stories of adventure. Give me a story of someone who’s gone off on some kind of adventure and gotten themselves in some kind of jam and I’m hooked. There are dozens of great books like that come to mind but there are 2 that stand out. Jon Krakaur’s Into Thin Air and RIver of Doubt about Teddy Roosevelt’s amazing trip in the Amazon. I also love anything by Stephen Ambrose. So imagine my surprise when FERRY PILOT came up alongside (and ahead of) these greats. I still can’t believe how well the book has been received.
