    The adventures of a fledgling bush pilot in the 1950s…a memoir…an adventure tale.

    It is the spring of 1951 and a twenty-year-old pilot named Ted Huntley begins his initiation into the world of bush flying, realizing a boyhood dream. It is by a stroke of luck that he becomes a last-minute replacement in a team of bush pilots headed for Alaska to work for the Coast and Geodetic Survey, which has the daunting task of mapping the then-Territory of Alaska. The youngest in a team of seasoned pilots, Huntley’s journey unfolds over two summers in Alaska as he hauls surveyors and their equipment in a brand-new Piper Super Cub.

    But it takes one more summer to complete his education, this time in British Columbia, flying men and equipment off and on a glacier for a prospecting company. Land Here? You Bet! is a true coming-of-age adventure tale and provides an entertaining primer on bush flying, but it is also a story about having the courage to reach for your dreams. Huntley’s story is not just an inspiration to aspiring pilots; it's an inspiration to dreamers everywhere reaching for their own stars.
