True North
by George Erickson

True North 
Front Cover
Back Cover

  In this beautifully written and keenly observed travel narrative, bush pilot/environmentalist George Erickson takes an unforgettable journey through some of the most remote and sparsely populated landscapes on the planet. Flying solo in his Piper Cub seaplane across the vast northern wilderness of Canada and the United States, the author travels to Hudson Bay, the Northwest Territories, Alaska, the Yukon, the Arctic Ocean and back south across Saskatchewan and Manitoba to his home in Minnesota.

Erickson captures, the exhilarating thrill of roughing it through adverse weather conditions, and evokes the sheer romance of adventuring in the far North. Replete with scientific observation and entertaining anecdotes, Erickson’s unique journey will appeal to both armchair travellers and flying enthusiasts alike.
GEORGE ERICKSON, a retired dentist, is passionate about flying and has logged more than a thousand hours flying over the North country. He is married with two adult sons and lives in Minnesota. This is his first book.
