Flying To Alaska—A Cross-Continent Adventure Join writer and pilot William S. Walker on one of general aviation’s most revered long-distance trips—a flight to Alaska. Walker writes, “Alaska is one of those ultimate journeys for aviators from the Lower 48 because it takes most of them completely out of their comfortable environments, not for just a four-hour stint or for a few days, but for weeks or longer. We were in the air 74 hours, flying more than 7,000 miles in a 59-year-old Cessna. It was probably the longest flying trip I will ever undertake and perhaps the best I will ever fly, although I hope there is even better to come.” Alaska Highway Flight Log is Walker’s personal daybook of the trip with distances, maps, airport identifiers and, foremost, his personal observations on the flying trip of a lifetime.

At Garden City Beach, S.C., where no one seemed to hurry, the first indication of trouble was the staccato rumble of footsteps on the stairs. A sharp knock at the door came next. And when 86-year-old Betty Mincey opened up she faced law officers wearing guns. Three men, two from the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources and a federal agent from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, had come to investigate the report of a dead dolphin taken in a net set by her husband in front of the Mincey house that morning, Nov. 3, 2013. After questioning 86-year-old World War II Navy veteran C.P. Mincey, the officers told him he had violated the Marine Mammal Protection Act which cites the illegal taking of a dolphin as a federal offense. The accompanying S.C. DNR officer told him he had also broken state laws in setting and observing the net. Mincey’s explanation that he had made no attempt to take the dolphin found dead earlier that morning in his lightweight mesh net did not appear to matter to the officers. They charged the South Carolina farmer with killing a dolphin and his fine was eventually set at $6500. The events at Garden City marked the opening stage of a 15-month-long battle between the Mincey family and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Join South Carolina author William Walker for an in-depth, entertaining behind-the-scenes account of how Mincey, with the support of Latta S.C., attorneys LaFon LeGette and Alan Berry, won his case in a contentious federal hearing at Georgetown, S.C.

A Legendary River, A Promise And A Unique Adventure It was a familiar place that William Walker returned to in the summer of 2012-back from a writing career in Europe to his boyhood home in Eastern South Carolina and to the Little Pee Dee, a legendary river celebrated from the time of Revolutionary War hero Francis Marion, the Swamp Fox. He had made a promise to his dying cousin Ben to paddle the river of their youth and he meant to keep his word. When he could fi nd no book to guide the 109-mile journey Walker wrote one. Down The Little Pee Dee-Paddling South Carolina's Legendary Blackwater River records the events of the trip made by the author and his friend and cousin, naturalist L.L. Gaddy. The two paddled the Little Pee Dee from its headwaters at Red Bluff Lake in Marlboro County, S.C., to the junction with the Great Pee Dee River near the Atlantic Ocean. Walker's entertaining and often deeply personal narrative intertwines the history of the Little Pee Dee-and his family's history-with the two paddlers' adventures on the river.

The unforgettable true story of the 1929 air race that legitimized female pilots. In 1929, nineteen women set out from Santa Monica, California, in flimsy, propeller driven planes, with a missiona to be the first to cover the 2,759 mile course to Cleveland, Ohio. Dubbed ""The Powder Puff Derby"" by humorist Will Rogers, who covered the race, the competition was aggressive and dangerous. A thrilling narrative, The Powder Puff Derby of 1929 tells the story of the first major female airplane race, whose contestants included Amelia Earhart, the most famous female pilot of her time. Many of the women flew in open cockpits, with no air controllers to help them and often only primitive airports to land on. Yet by facing the hazards with skill and determination, the racers thrilled the nation and pioneered a new future and respect for female aviators. The Powder Puff Derby of 1929 tells the stories of these first female pilots, gutsy and colorful adventurers who flew in air circuses, set altitude and speed records and fought for the right to become part of the male-dominated world of aviation. The book also includes various artifacts of the groundbreaking race, including priceless, never-before-published black and white photos, as well as Air Force maps of the terrain over which the women flew. An inspiring story of confidence and persistence, The Powder Puff Derby of 1929 captures a defining moment in the history of aviation and women's rights."
