About this title

From Publishers Weekly:

A pair of black Americans here launch a lonely struggle to be the first of their race to fly across the country in Lynn's memorable rendition of an actual 1932 event. Having read about a $1000 reward offered to the first "negroes"stet lowercase to make the flight, pilot James Herman Banning persuades L.A. mechanic and would-be aviator Thomas Allen to join him in the attempt. Through an assiduous fund-raising campaign, the duo and their supporters collect enough money to salvage a wrecked biplane for their cause. But in this Depression-era exploit, money is always a serious problem, and trying to raise it puts the adventurers at personal risk, to say nothing of jeopardizing their endeavor. Nevertheless, Allen and Banning "plop down every couple of miles and beg for gas, good hangars, parts and God knows what else." As part of their pitch, they enter the names of their patrons in a "Gold Book," promising that this will eventually be displayed along with their craft, the Eagle Rock , in the Smithsonian Institution. In Lynn's ( The Factory ) hands, James and Thomas are both believable and likable--instantly sympathetic--while his plot twists make for a bittersweet ending.

Store Description

The books listed on ABE are not always available in our stores. Please do not call our store locations for these items. With 3 stores less than 1 hour outside the DC/Metropolitan area (1 in Gaithersburg, 1 in Frederick and 1 in Hagerstown, MD), we have the largest selection of books in the tri-state area. Wonder Book and Video has been in business since 1980 and online since 1997. We have over 1 Million books for sale on our website and another 1 Million books for sale in our 3 locations. We have a very active online inventory and as such, we can receive multiple orders for the same item. We fill those orders on a first come first serve basis, but will refund promptly any items that are out of stock. Since 1980 it has always been about the books. ALL kinds of books from 95 cent children's paperbacks to five figure rare and collectibles. A merging of the old and new is where we started, and it is where we are today. Our retail stores have always been places where a reader can rush in looking for a title needed for a term paper that is due the next day, or where bibliophiles can get lost "in the stacks" for as long as they wish. In 2002 USAToday recognized us as "1 of 10 Great Old Bookstores", and we have been featured in numerous other newspaper and TV stories including Washington Post and CSpan. Members ABAA, ILAB.
