Description
Joe Crosson became a national hero between the world wars flying mercy missions in the North, including a dangerous search in a dark Siberian winter for a lost pilot, Carl Ben Eielson, and a bitterly cold winter flight in an open cockpit carrying serum through uncharted mountains to Barrow, Alaska. He was the first pilot to land on a glacier.Thriving on adversity and overcoming tragedy, Crosson is influenced by two strong women in his life -- his sister, Marvel, with whom he shared a love of flying, and Lillian, the beautiful young woman who became his wife. This trio has starlike qualities as well as grit and determination.
