Wings Over The Alaska Highway
by Bruce McAllister and Peter Corley-Smith
Roundup Press, April 2001
This beautifully-illustrated volume tells the story of aviation's role in the development of the Alaska Highway. It includes stories on resourceful Bush pilots, chapters
on the key airports along the highway, the Russian-American Lend Lease Program, and the Million Dollar Valley (where an entire flight of B-26 planes crash-landed and all survived).
Book Guy: A Librarian in the Peace
Set in a simpler age, this unusual story transports its readers to the remote Peace River and Alaska Highway regions of Northern British Columbia. This vast hinterland is where author Howard Overend and his true-grit predecessors helped establish an extensive mobile library service to children in tiny schools and adults in communities in areas well back of beyond.
A historical novel by Jean Kadmon, based on her experiences working on the Canol Project in the Northwest Territories during World War II.
