By Ernest K Gann


Aviation writer, Ernest K Gann, describes his years working as a pilot from the 1930s to 1950s, starting at American Airlines when civilian air transport was in its infancy. He's flown in both peace and war, and come close to death many times. Here he reveals the characters he's known and the dramas he's experienced, portraying fate as a hunter constantly in pursuit of pilots. This is a fabulous account of both the history of aviation and one man's life in the air.
