View From the Tower
View from the Tower – My Port Hardy Years and West Coast Aviation Adventures
by Grant B. Evans
It is 1960 and a newly minted air traffic controller moves his young wife and daughter to the remote Port Hardy airport for his first posting. With passion and humour Grant B Evans takes the reader through one adventure after another while tracing the past of north Vancouver Island and its people.
The View From The Tower is a combination of humour, history, geography and memoir. An ode to airplanes and flight. The reader is transported to a place and time that no longer exists. A terrific read.
