The book documents the history, experiences and hardships of an intrepid aircraft engineer in salvaging damaged aircraft in the wilderness of Northern Canada. It describes the difficult and hazardous situations demanding ingenuity, resourcefulness and a lot of difficult hard work. Within the book covers are the stories of the retrievals, temporary repairs and rescues of aircraft from Artic, Tundra, remote areas of Western Canada, lake bottoms, glaciers and trees. It shows the nature of the nothern people, their willingness to provide and unreservedly to help in order to finish the job successfully. Denny's over 50 years experience in the aviation field demonstrates a lesser known side of aviation that is from the engineers' and accident investigators' perspective. This book is the first of its' kind and once started, compels the reader to continue to the last page.
