Diamonds 'neath My Wings
In this true and compelling autobiography by one of the few surviving bush-pilots that flew this territory, Donald Haack in his own words brings vividly to life a rags-to-riches story of a primitive land, diamonds and secrets, treacherous rivers and airplane crashes, and fortunes made and lost. In 1955 the Janet Haack flew off from Wisconsin with her new husband, Don, in their two-seater Piper Super Cub named “grasshopper.” Headed for British Guiana, South America, they would set up a diamond-mining operation and their home in the wilds along the Ireng River... Continuing the adventures of Bush Pilot in Diamond Country, Haack’s new book, Diamond Safari, is a book of both triumph and tragedy and the ever-present lure of diamonds for Haack and the men who lived, flew and mined diamonds beside him. Diamonds ‘neath My Wings, the third book of the Trilogy on Guyana... melding sophisticated New York investors with the realities of a charter plane business in primitive and uncharted territory of the Lost World.
