When coastal seaplane pilots return from flying what they call the “North Coast Sched.” They have stories to tell, “Tall tales and true,” the author calls them from flights in Beavers and Otters into logging camps and private float camps, sport fishing resorts and remote native villages and BC coastal communities.

"There I was at 800 feet with this crazy guy wanting to take his chain saw to the tail", exclaimed one distraught pilot, and another tells of finding an upturned boat on a perfectly calm day with no sign of the occupants, and check out the Swifts Premium flight with 3 pigs squealing and doing other things in the back of a Beaver heading up the coast.

Almost every page illustrated by the author’s pen sketches and many photos to take you on the North Coast scheduled flights out of Campbell River, Port McNeill and Port Hardy on the BC coast during the heyday of BC’s coastal aviation industry—when “planes were made of wood and men of iron,” suggested one “coastdog” from his prone position on a beach in the Bahamas during the industry’s winter pilot lay-off season. “We’re the new-age freebooters and soldiers of fortune,” he confided to his gorgeous young stewardess companion. Or am I just dreaming this?” he says, when waking up in the pilot’s ready room with its tattered furniture and Playboy centre-folds scotch-taped to the wall.
