I have just read the book, i have buy a hat and 2 shirts,

When you say you have "read the book" were you talking about the one by Daniel Cattoni ? If not this book is available on Amazon. I have not read it so I can't comment on its quality.

Or maybe you mean "The Ice Pilots" by Michael Vlessides, published by D&M Publishers.

Some information there about Joe's early years, though most of the book is about the current company.

"Wings above the Arctic" is another great book about bush flying in the Canadian North. There is a small piece about Buffalo in the book as well as stories about other great Arctic aviators. It's mostly a photobook but has some interesting stories and is an easy read for someone learning English.
