Vern Gorst and the Pacific Air Transport Air Mail
"At the beginning of the 20th Century, the aviation industry was being built by resourceful pioneers. As an aviation pioneer, Vern Gorst stood tall amongst his peers. He had ambition, the ability to recognize where public transportation was needed, and the ability to build successful businesses. On numerous occasions, in different places, and with different modes of transportation, Vern organized transportation companies where they were needed.With an expansive vision beyond aviation, Vern built several experimental types of transportation vehicles, including one that would go on land or water. Very early, he followed the progress of the Wright Brothers, and observed some of the earliest flights in Oregon. By 1913, he was flying his own aircraft on the Oregon Coast. He knew that air travel would become the preferred mode of transportation for cross-country travel at the expense of ground transportation, and he wasnt about to be left behind when it happened.This book chronicles Verns adventures from mining gold in the Yukon to making experimental vehicles to building transportation companies including the Pacific Mail Transport (PAT) company. It tells not only of the successes but also the mishaps along the way. Throughout his life, Vern was a technology enthusiast, adventurer, experimenter, business man, and a contributor to aviation and transportation history. His story is a profile of what is needed at any time to give birth to an industry and turn dreams to reality." $35 includes shipping
