Description


Embark on a captivating journey through the skies with Kathryn Krotz-Finn. This memoir chronicles the extraordinary life of a woman pilot whose love affair with aviation began in the rugged beauty of Minnesota's famed Arrowhead region.


Kathryn's tale is interwoven with the legacy of her father, Clarence Krotz, a World War II bomber pilot. Together, the Krotz family builds a seaplane base and resort on Devil Track Lake in Cook County, setting the stage for a lifetime of adventure in the air. Against the backdrop of a family-owned Piper J-3 Cub, Kathryn defies societal norms of her time, earning her pilot's license and continuing to soar through the skies today in that very same beloved plane.


Beyond a personal narrative, Chasing the North Wind contributes to the celebration of Cook County's 75 years of aviation. This milestone, reached in 2023, marks a testament to the transformative power of flight in transportation, recreation, and the enduring beauty it brings to the lives of those touched by its wings. Although an officially decommissioned airport, Skyport's history is a legacy worth remembering.


Join Kathryn and her yellow Piper Cub on this timeless voyage, where the wind whispers tales of courage, family, and the boundless freedom found in the open skies.
