– – TRUE NORTH – Exploring the Great Wilderness by Bush Plane – –
with George Erickson
Based on his best seller and 38 flights through the far North, this presentation is, in the words of many reviewers, “a joyous voyage of discovery through time and space, providing fascinating glimpses of Canada, Alaska, aeronautics, exploration and history via vivid photographs and stories told with humility and humor by a pilot with the capacity to dream, and the ability to make the dream come true. His 30-second closing delivered music-enhanced images that brought tears to my eyes.” – 60 Minutes.
