“In an era of fast planes and high tech theme parks, it is truly refreshing to be able to be taken back in time by the pages of a book,” writes singer-songwriter Jimmy Buffett in a foreword to this oversized pictorial history. Covering the years 1935 to 1946, when Pan Am established mail and passenger flights across the Pacific, the colorful tome tells the story of those historic days through personal interviews, logs of early Pan Am employees, and vintage photographs, souvenir flight covers, posters, old postcards and memorabilia. The author created a website for Pan Am aviation buffs at www.pacificpioneers.com.
