Final Flight

Final Flight
Peter Stekel


In October 2005, two mountaineers were climbing the icy couloir above Mendel Glacier in the High Sierra. They never made it. They found a body instead, the remarkably well-preserved remains of a man in a WWII uniform, frozen in the ice. The “iceman” immediately gripped the attention of the nation and a media storm ensued. Who was the Frozen Airman? Where did he come from and how did he get there? The mystery drew writer and Sierra devotee Peter Stekel deeper and deeper as he investigated: A navigation training flight missing since 1942 with its four-man crew. A crash site 150 miles off-course from its reported destination. Early attempts at recovery thwarted. Empty graves and botched records. Bad weather, bad luck, bad timing. Families waiting, long forgotten.

Then, in 2007, the unthinkable happened again. Stekel himself discovered a second body in the glacier. Another young man would finally be coming home. Through years of archival research, interviews, conjecture, and his own mountaineering trips to the crash site, Stekel uncovered who these four young men were who had lost their lives in service to their country. Final Flight explores the story of the ill-fated flight, and the bad leads and misinformation surrounding it for over 60 years. It’s also author Peter Stekel’s personal quest to investigate the many threads of the story, from the crew’s disappearance to the discovery of the two airmen.

Along the way Stekel became convinced that the accepted facts of how these soldiers went missing did not give the whole story. The only way to find out for sure what happened was to discover all he could about these young men and their times, the war-era military they enlisted in, their training and experience, their Beech 18 aircraft, the state of navigation and weather science at midcentury, and their icy tomb. The book deftly weaves these threads into a gripping account that’s part mystery, part history, and a personal journey to uncover the truth of what happened on Nov. 18, 1942. In the process Stekel rewrites the young aviators' last days and takes us on their final flight.

Hunting Nature's Fury

Hunting Nature's Fury
Roger Hill with Peter Bronski


Each year, at least 1,200 tornadoes batter the United States. While most occur in Tornado Alley—a vast, weather-beaten swath of middle America—in truth, tornadoes can occur almost anywhere. And where there are tornadoes, there are storm chasers. They come in all shapes and sizes, from hobbyists to researchers to professional chasers. There is one, however, who stands well above the rest: Roger Hill.

Hunting Nature’s Fury tells the story of Roger Hill and his love affair with storm chasing, taking you on a suspenseful and dramatic ride across the Great Plains, into the Deep South, even into the eyes of such recent hurricanes as Katrina. You’ll accompany Hill as he braves close calls, makes history, and gains insight into the science of severe weather. This is a story of a storm chaser obsessed with the storms that almost killed him; of resiliency in the face of disaster; and of humility in the presence of the awesome power of nature.

Includes eight color pages of jaw-dropping photos taken by Hill showing many of the storms chronicled in the book.

Kings Canyon National Park
Mike White


One of America's deepest gorges, Kings Canyon plunges more than 8000 feet and extends nearly eleven miles in length. Pristine alpine lakes reflect the surrounding silver-grey peaks, lupine and corn lilies flourish in meadows, and giant sequoias tower in world's largest stands of these ancient trees. This is the dramatic landscape of Kings Canyon National Park, southern neighbor to the more famous Yosemite.

Cool your feet in the turbulent clear waters of the South Fork Kings River, enjoy a picnic beside raucous Mist Falls, ramble on creekside trails through forests fragrant with cedar and pine, or regain your perspective from the park's highest points. Where the highway ends, the adventures begin…

Kings Canyon National Park: A Complete Hiker's Guide is the first comprehensive guide to the trails, campgrounds, outfitters, and facilities in the park and its environs. You'll find trips in neighboring Giant Sequoia National Monument, Sierra National Forest, and the Jennie Lakes and Monarch wilderness areas.
