An account of three months of flight in a vintage 1942 Stearman bi-plane. Travelling across 48 continental United States, Coonts flies like the legendary barnstormers, painting a picture of the astonishing panorama of landscapes beneath him, from the Painted Desert to the Grand Canyon and Mount Rushmore. He swoops under storms and over mountains, across swamps, deserts, forests and the monumental expanse of the Great Plains; he relates with relish the sights, sounds and stories of small-town America; he shares the individual tales of the people he meets along the way. His experiences fill him with nostalgia for the past and above all an overriding hope for the future. The author also wrote "Under Siege", "The Minotaur", "Final Flight" and "Flight of the Intruder".
