“Following the tragic events of February 1937, when the Stinson Airliner VH-UHH, crashed in the McPherson Range, I have received many oft-repeated and apparently sincere requests to write the story of that memorable rescue in which it was my good fortune to play the principal part.  So at last the tale is here recorded in authentic detail, a saga of courage and endurance on the part of both rescued and rescuers, furnishing another page in the growing history of Australian character and achievement.  I also received repeated requests to write something of my early life and training, and this, too, I have done to the best of my ability.”
