“Every Light Aircraft Pilot Should Have This Book. It May Save Your Life.”
December 14, 2016 | TruthPR.com | -- An avowed atheist, Mark Rose turned to God for the first time when he was 22-years-old as his plane ran out of fuel flying through a massive snowstorm in the Alaskan bush.
“If there is a God, I need your help now,” Rose said.
Immediately after that prayer, the plane popped out of the snowstorm.
“Before me were the beautiful lights of Kotzebue – it might as well have been the lights of heaven,” he recalls.
Rose chronicles this story and his years as a bush pilot, hunter and trapper in LAST OF THE LONG HUNTERS.
At 16 Rose learned to fly, and by age 22 had become a bush pilot who helped maintain a fleet of helicopters that worked on the Alaska pipeline.
In LAST OF THE LONG HUNTERS you’ll have a front seat view of the thrills of bush planes and helicopters operating in the most dangerous conditions on Earth, flying in minus 60 temperatures and horrific storms, airborne among the magnificent mountains and glaciers that only Alaska has to offer.
The book opens with a look at early history of the 49th State, leading to the eventual use and development of a new tool of transport – the single engine airplane.
While LAST OF THE LONG HUNTERS weaves together thrilling stories of an Alaskan bush pilot, it ultimately compels readers to grapple with its final truth.
“Everything I read in the Bible is either a lie or its true. It’s all or nothing. From reading the Bible I understand God is my creator,” Rose said. “If Jesus can raise someone from the dead and forgive my sins, that’s exactly what God has for me.”
What People Are Saying:
“I highly recommend this book! This is a fantastic read with a big payoff. This is a great read for anyone who loves history, aviation, hunting and true-life stories. We've all enjoyed hearing those unbelievable stories growing up, around a campfire or the dinner table. Those stories that have you on the edge of your seat and the ones that creates heroes. This book is an incredible story and a true story the author lived through and changed his life forever. In addition I enjoyed the setup with the history of Alaska, his growing up in Alaska, the visual journey the author takes you through heading into the vast unknown of the Alaska territory. I'm not a pilot but I found myself following the author's routine and there are a lot of tips in the appendix of the book that are his notes to other pilots where he is wanting to pass his wisdom along. Looking forward to reading more from the author!”
