What do you do if you’re flying through fog over an icy ocean, the nearest land is 200 miles away, your heading gyros disagree by over 20 degrees and your fuel gauges are hovering near zero? Or you’ve been ordered to fly a dying First Nations man to hospital but he’s begging you to take him back to his beloved wilderness to die in peace? Or you’re marooned alone in minus 50-degree temperatures with a disabled plane, no radio and the nearest help a thousand miles away? How about trying to land a loaded DC-3 on a 2000 ft sandbar in the middle of the Porcupine River in Northern Yukon?

These are just a few of the problems that face the young Danny Bereza in his new job flying a DC-3 and F27 over the ‘Big Dipper Route’ in the Canadian Arctic in the late 60’s.

In this stunning book, a true story, we see the inexperienced pilot develop as a person through solving the problems he encounters, and we gain an insight into the life of those days, as well as experiencing through his eyes the beauties and dangers of the Arctic environment.
