A Wolf’s Moon: A Helicopter Pilot’s Story


Set in the glorious mountains and plains of the Yukon, Northwest Territories, Alberta and British Columbia, A Wolf’s Moon is a gripping account of Hank Sands’ adventures during his 18 years piloting helicopters.

In Wood Buffalo National Park, Hank finds himself skinny dipping with a one-ton buffalo. Near Stewart, BC, he flies over an avalanche path with a bundle of dynamite fused to blow at any second, but it is lodged, unreachable, outside on the cargo rack. In an isolated Yukon tent camp, a mad Irishman threatens to chop everyone up with an axe. At another tent camp, a pack of wolves holds everyone in awe. High in the Bugaboos, Hank stares half-blind as explosive fuel drips from a damaged fuel tank onto the red-hot turbo charger of his crashed helicopter. Near Telegraph Creek, BC, a very large and legendary grizzly sends him running for his life. A raging forest fire threatening Fort Resolution, NWT, kindles a love story. In Port Alberni, BC, Hank flies into a 130,000-volt powerline. These are but a few from this collection of incredible yet true tales.
