"Breakaway" details life of adventure

Yukon045.jpgWalter "Yukon" Yates never shied away from a challenge, even when that challenge took him far from home and put his life in danger.

Yates served with the U.S. Marine Corps in the Second World War, and when civilian life proved a bit too boring he lit out for the North and life as a bush pilot and prospector in the Yukon and Alaska.

He has a tonne of stories, and has collected them in a new autobiography called Breakaway.
