This book is dedicated to the bush pilot's wives. Women were part of the exciting bush flying. Women worked alongside their men and endured the same hardships. They laughed, loved, and gave birth to new generations. Some were of an era in Alaska when those early bush pilots were making legends. Some were pilots and big game guides themselves and made legends of there own. Bush Pilots' Wives is about real Alaskans and the qualities of those sturdy women, as well as the men, who have made Alaska what it is today. Just as it has been down through the ages, women wait at home doing what has to be done when their men are gone to war or to other places men go to protect and provide for their family. Sometimes that home is a remote village, Nome, Bettles, or some such place. Wherever it is, the bush pilot's wife copes with all types of inconveniences, raising the kids without indoor plumbing and modern conveniences, and overcoming the additional emergencies that always happen. Bush Pilots' Wives is for and about these special Alaskans.So soon after the war there wasna#39;t a problem finding work in Fairbanks and wages were better than anything we had ... the outskirts of Fairbanks and I didna#39;t have to ask for a job with a new business in FairbanksaThe Interior Decorating Shop.
