Description

A collection of true stories, Bird in the Bush is about the life of L. Jo King; her friends, family, and a motley cast of characters that can only be found in the Alaskan bush. The author takes readers from a small rocky mountain town to the abandoned copper mines of the Wrangell Mountains, and all points in between. Jo shares the reality of being an Alaskan bush pilot, flight instructor, and air traffic controller at a time and in a place where women were seen as less capable than their male counterparts. From inspiring triumphs of spirit to close calls and heartbreaking losses, L. Jo King tells her tales with humor and honesty. You will encounter extreme weather and airplane crashes, visit ghost towns and gold mines, meet angry bears and hungry wolves, go on a polar bear hunt, fly high over Prince William Sound, Bristol Bay, and Alaska's great mountain ranges-then visit with presidents, movie stars, captains of industry, and astronauts. These stories tell the tale of a brave young woman and the dreams she dared to live. Enjoy the adventure.
