About this title


The first woman to win the U.S. Aerobatic Championship recounts how her life and career as a stunt flier

From Booklist:

Wagstaff spent the first 30 years of her life surviving a dysfunctional family, an abusive marriage, and the counterculture. She then learned to fly with such authority that she won the U.S. National Acrobatic Championship thrice (she is the only woman to win it at all) and became an acknowledged leading figure in airshow displays and competitive acrobatics. She describes her earlier years in such a melange of New Age jargon, psychobabble, and feminese that one wonders whose voice is speaking (perhaps professional coauthor Cooper's). But then she and the book take to the air, delivering a classic flyer's narrative and imparting far more genuinely interesting information about modern acrobatic competition, its people and machines, and Wagstaff herself. So here are two books, really, flying in close formation, one likely to appeal to aging hippies, maybe, while the other tells the tale of a real champion. Roland Green
