Mark Rose is a commercial helicopter and fixed wing pilot with many hours flying in the Alaskan Bush. He was in charge of contract operations building the 28 mountain sites for the Alaska Pipeline, a 24/7 three year undertaking. He grew up on the fringe of the Alaskan wilderness, hunting and trapping in bear country and later flying hunters into Alaska's frontier Arctic. Rose has over 40 years flying experience in both fixed wing and helicopters, and is also the author of The Noah Code, a work resultant of his 25 years working directly in the mining industry around the world.

What are your five favorite books, and why?
I'll tell you - History of Alaska by Bancroft, Kit Carson Days by Sabin, Course of Empire by Devoto. Also the Lewis and Clark Diaries again by Devoto and finally Jedidiah Smith and the Opening of the West by Dale Morgan.
I don't like my history revised or post modernized - I like it raw and to the point. These titles plus Old Yukon by Wickersham do just that. Several of these have been unfairly pulled from libraries. I also read WWII stuff, this to appreciate what we have in the free west and somehow see trends that effect our freedoms and how we should act to defend them.
