Great story, well told! As a "low and slow" private pilot for the past 20 years this book brings back the adventure of cross-country flying across America. It is a story with the same theme as "Flight of Passage" and "Flight of the Gin Fizz", but the writing style is even better. In addition the author weaves the rich history of the Stearman biplane, and provides the day-to-day issues that faced pilots of the "golden age of aviation". If your are a person who travels for the trip more then the destination you will enjoy this book even more!
