He landed his first job with Okanagan Helicopters, and trained in Kamloops and the Kootenays where he was trained on Bell 47 G2 and Hiller 12 E choppers. Hank went on to become an experienced pilot and spent much of his time in northern BC and later on Vancouver Island.

The stories in A Wolf’s Moon span several decades and relate Hank’s encounters with a host of northern characters, from diamond drillers and geologists to forestry personnel and biologists.
