Paul Westlund lived an adventure that most men only dream, combining great skill with deep faith to meet the challenges of jungle aviation. What caused this pilot to risk his life, day after day, for twenty-five years, to help the last and the least of the peoples of the earth? What dangers did he face? What obstacles did he overcome? And what price was he willing to pay? These are the questions Paul Westlund answered in the memoir he was concluding days before his final flight. Each chapter, ripped straight from his logbooks, gives the reader a pilot's-eye view of flying and faith on the far side of the world.
