Books I've Read (Fall/Winter 2005): Bax Seat

Gordon Baxter, Bax Seat: Log of a Pasture Pilot. Bax was the much-beloved columnist for Flying magazine who could really express the joy of flight, right down to the toenails. I ape his writing style somewhat; until I read this book, I'd forgotten whom I was imitating! Highly recommended, for anyone who flies, loves aviation, or wonders what the heck the fuss is all about. Also includes some rather interesting connective tissue in the form of memos, reminisces, and a smattering of well-placed back-shots about what it was like to write for Flying.

If he could do it, I...well, I could try, anyway.
