A Light On The Runway
ISBN  1-933678-14-3
by Janet Haack
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, 250 miles from the coast.  They brought a daughter and son into this primitive world, here on the border of Brazil, to share an unusual life in the lush green valley they named Marquis.
A Light on the Runway is the woman's side of the adventure described by her husband in his book, Bush Pilot in Diamond Country.
