When the novel opens, he was on the way to his assignment, flying over the vast subarctic wilderness in a jet piloted by Wing Commander Ron Dorkett. During an ice storm, the engines failed; a crashwas inevitable. Ash had to parachute alone into the snow-covered lake coun try. There, in pain and delirium, he thought he was being taken care of by Margo, the girl he had loved so long ago. He relived the past that involvedRon and Margo, that took him again on the bombing raids over Germany and t o the fatal act that was to give Ron the chance to destroy him. Now, after years of dedicated research, Ash had made the discovery responsible for hisgoing on the hated mission and his meeting with Ron. When Ash returned to consciousness, he realized that it was not Margo who had found him. It was Lilka, a German girl who had been brought up in the isolated northland by her war-twisted father. Elusive and beautiful, she was as much a part of thewild as the animals she knew so well. As the relationship between Ash and Lilka changed from fear and dependency to love, she revealed to him the secret of the wilderness -- a secret that could change the world." - from the dustjacket.

"The late Archbishop Breynat, who died while this English edition of his book was being prepared, had a unique and world-wide reputation while he lived. For fifty years a missionary - forty of them a bishop- in the Canadian Far North, he was the first to appreciate the value of air travel in administering a "diocese" of hundreds of thousands of square miles. Here "The Flying Bishop" - the title withwhich he was saluted by the journalistic world - tells the story of his lo ng and eventful life, from his first vocation to the mission-field [... told] with delightful modesty and not a little sly humour. Here we have first-hand descriptions of the way to evangelise the Indians, of the founding of new missions in the most inaccessible places, of the crudities and odditiesof the Eskimo way of life on the shore of the Arctic Ocean. The author was also in a position to give the authentic facts concerning the tragic fate of Fr. Rouvière and Fr. Le Roux, and the notorious trial of their murderersin 1917. He tells us, too, of his audiences with the great, with Sir Wilfr id Laurier and no fewer than four Popes, of the surprising knowledgeableness of Pius XI in the matter of diesel engines, and of the encouragement he received from both him and Pius XII. Apart from its value as a missionary record, this book has great general interest as illustrating the vast changesthat have come over the Canadian North-West [...]." - from the dust-jacket .
