Larry Whitesitt of Spokane, Washington, began flying in 1959 and purchased a Piper J-3 Cub when he had 15 flying hours. During the 1960s and 1970s, he was a bush pilot, flying de Havilland Beaver sea planes and ski planes out of the Yukon into British Columbia and Northwest Territories. This story begins in the cockpit of 734 Uniform Whiskey, a small palne he flew alone to the Arctic Ocean and the Inuit Village of Tuktoyaktuk. Larry reflects on his adventures, which include enounters with mean grizzly bears, a crash in a ski plane, and great fishing trips. The story ends with Larry's last flight into his beloved north, which was recorded on video.
