"Breakaway" details life of adventure
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.
