    Hal Terry's book "How to Fly the Wild and Survive"

    Folks,

    Hal and Bonnie Terry have got a newly printed batch of Hal's book on back country flying technique from the printers.

    Hal can be reached at PO Box 316, Rudyard, MT 59540. I think the price is around $25, but don't quote me.

    The book is a good discussion of backcountry techniques and thoughts on flying in the wilderness.

    Hal is a retired Naval Aviator, and flew for several years for air taxi outfits, lodges, and the Department of Fish and Game in Alaska.

    His book contains a lot of good information--get a copy while they last.

    And, no-I don't get a cut.

    Hal is the guy who gave me a Super Cub checkout, though.

    Poor guy still hasn't forgiven me.

    Mike, I thought I would update this...Hal's book is available on Amazon.com.

    Actually, I think this post is what directed me to purchase the book (I bought several as gifts) in the first place. Thanks for the post, MTV!

    I am surprised you are sending me a book as a gift.

    John, I just looked and agree that it is no longer available...it was when I posted on this thread.

    I will look into this and get back to you all. It is worth pursuing.

    Would love to get a copy but Amazon (US) won't ship it to Canada and Amazon (Canada) doesn't have it.

    I tried for a couple of years to buy this book. Same as NunavutPA-12, I couldn't get it shipped to New Zealand. I even contacted the Terrys.

    In the end I got a friend to buy it in the US and mail it to me. It is a good book.
