AMAZON TOP 100—NEW NOVELS 2013

"You won't want to put it down while the midnight sun still shines!"—Airways Magazine

"MAYDAY, MADAY! I'M GOING DOWN, I'M GOING D—" 
 
Two young pilots, Daniel "DC" Alva, and Allen David Foley, take on the world's most dangerous flying: the Alaskan bush. But Mother Nature—and a beautiful Native Alaskan—stand in their way.

Southeast Alaska Seaplanes, Juneau. Retired airline captain, Chief Pilot Dusty Tucker pilots a renegade band of flying misfits. Meet legendary bush pilot Jake “Crash” Whitakker, equally adept at landing planes and ladies—and “crashin’ ‘em” as well; prankster pilot Ralph Olaphsen, who once set an extinct volcano ablaze on April Fool’s Day; and no-nonsense Check Airman Holly Innes, trying to cut a respectable niche in the notoriously macho bush pilot world—while escaping a dangerous past.

Amid Alaska’s volatile skies, DC and Allen face escalating challenges in and out of the cockpit. As the two cheechackos, or greenhorns, learn the ropes, they are also roped into Crash and Ralph’s hare-brained scheme, Operation Dirty Harry. Under the suspicious nose of Draconian FAA Inspector Frederick Bruner, the pilots hatch a plot to hijack and rescue a planeload of orphaned bear cubs. Moreover, mischievous Tlingit Indian Tonya Hunter, as wild and unpredictable as the land in which she lives, plays the two lovestruck cheechackos against each other.

But the true villain of the story is Mother Nature herself. Alaska’s notoriously fickle weather and rugged terrain take on a life of its own.

Can the two cheechackos survive Her relentless onslaught and launch their fledgeling airline careers?”

Airline Captain, popular blogger and author Eric Auxier brings his former Alaska bush flying experience to life in his second novel, "The Last Bush Pilots." The award-winning "Code Name: Dodger" is his first. 
 
"Eric Auxier is the next Tom Clancy of Aviation." —Tawni Waters, Author, "Beauty of the Broken;" "Siren Song;" Grand Prize Recipient, Top Travel Writers 2010 
 
"I flew through The Last Bush Pilots in one sitting, keeping my seatbelt securely fastened. A fast-paced tale, thoroughly enjoyed."—John Wegg, Editor Airways Magazine

"Eric paints pictures with words that are every bit as beautiful and moving as anything ever drawn or photographed. " —Aviationguy.com

5.0 von 5 Sternen Absolutely Awesome! 10. Januar 2013
Von Karlene K. Petitt - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
For anyone who has ever had a dream fueled by passion, and sacrificed a life they had once known to make that dream come true, will appreciate the journey that DC embarks upon. Not many people have seen the wilderness called the Alaska Bush. But for those who have, they will relive the most vivid memories of their lives. For those who haven't, you are ready for an adventure of a lifetime.

Cap'n Aux takes you into another world--one that he has lived. His writing is crisp, and he's found a voice all his own. His characters are well developed, and I found myself cheering them on, and felt pain in their darkest hours. I became part of the story that I could not put down.

When DC takes to the air the reader gets more than great flying scenes, they get to learn lessons from the bush. The place where pilots are born, and many have died.

Who will love this book? Anybody wanting a great adventure story. Future pilots reaching for a dream. And any pilot who wants to remember the passion of what drove them to their career.

Excellent job!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Eric Auxier's look at Alaskan aviation 12. April 2013
Von William J. Findley - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This is excellent work on so many levels. Alaska is a haven for all sorts of end-of-the-road types, and Auxier's presentations of the young pilots DC and Allen, the former airline pilot Dusty Tucker, hillbilly prankster Ralph Olafsen, the complex Veronica Redding/Holly Innes, and all the rest are as complete as the flesh and blood Alaskans in John McPhee's "Coming Into the Country."

The plot is beautifully crafted, without any signs of tricks or a formula. Auxier's use of dialogue is skillful, so the method never gets in the way of the story. Most impressive to me is his technical credibility, no matter whether the subject is rock climbing, weather, or aircraft. Auxier has keen powers of observation, and has clearly been collecting and cataloguing vignettes for most of his life. Still, he is not limited by his own experiences, as varied as they are. He is not old enough to have flown in the Vietnam war, for instance, but his portrayal of A7 combat is as believable as his Cessna 207 bush flying.

This is not a genre that I often read, and I am much more familiar with Conrad, Faulkner and O'Connor than Clancy, Grisham and Koontz. I do know good writing when I see it, and this is not what I expected in a breakthrough novel.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Highly Recommend...Highly Captivating in the Alaska Skies. 28. November 2012
Von BonRip - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
"Mayday...Mayday". Those two words were the bait. As twisted as this might sound in the looming possibility of someone's demise I needed to find out what happened next, and so I kept reading. I was then completely hooked and reeled in. Author, Eric Auxier knows how to deliver a heart thumping beginning that shaped the foundation of this fictional story of two young aspiring pilots, Daniel C Alva "DC", and his best friend Allen D Foley. Working the skies towards getting into the big leagues, they both take on the Alaskan Bush, and whatever else "SHE" decides to dish out. This heart thumping adrenalin rush continues throughout the whole novel making it such a worthwhile purchase.

Throughout you will find characters that you'll either love or hate. This tale spins the lives of "as tough as you can get & the cheechacko (greenhorn)" Alaskan bush pilots, aviation, the beauty of the land, the unforgiving weather, and the meeting of friends new and old , all woven together into one great novel. Each chapter brings on new adventures and for anyone that loves life's mystery, history, geography, humor, a little romance, danger, twists and turns that you never expected then you will highly enjoy this novel. (I must say the romance is not sappy, but has a certain edge to it).

What I greatly appreciated was the author's wit, humor, and style of personal touches (as a pilot himself), that he painted throughout the book for the reader. This novel left me satisfied, entertained, and surprisingly enough gave me a new found admiration and knowledge of aviation, and the wild beautiful land known as Alaska or more appropriately "The Last Bush Pilots" of The Last Frontier.

With that said, do I highly recommend this book? YES...completely captivating.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great read 18. September 2013
Von Kelley kregle - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This book is about a young pilot unable to get a job without experience and unable to get experience without a job. He eventually landed a job in Alaska piloting tourists, hunters, locals and cargo. He got the job--and the experience. In and out of the cockpit. Well developed characters that will be remembered long after the last page has been read.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A good read for any pilot or people interested in Aviation. 18. Februar 2013
Von Christopher Gosch - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I enjoyed reading Cap Aux's book. As a pilot myself I have thought of moving to Alaska and working as a bush pilot and his simple but good story motivates me to try in the future. His storytelling from the first person makes you feel as if you are there with him in the skies of Alaska. The small aviation details make the flying feel realistic and the story is entertaining. I would love to here more about his adventures in the Caribbean as well.
