Fearless Flight: The Amazing Adventures of Wiley Post

Our Price: $14.95


To say that Wiley Post was an aviator risk taker would be an understatement; he was a man who exceeded all expectations, overcame a criminal past and conquered physical and emotional disabilities.  His journeys include jumping out of airplanes, crash landing, soaring to unexplored heights, and pushing himself and his planes to the absolute limit.  Wiley Post’s strength of character and resolute determination sets him apart as one of the world’s most renowned and innovative pilots.  His record-setting flights are legendary, his discoveries and inventions remain unparalleled in the aviation world, and his impact on aeronautics is the source of legend.  It is now more than seven decades since Wiley Post flew some of the most remarkable flights in aviation history and ultimately died “at the top of the world” with his friend, Will Rogers.  This young reader adaptation of Bob Burke’s award-winning biography of Post, From Oklahoma to Eternity:  The Life of Wiley Post and the Winnie Mae, is filled with Post’s exciting adventures, enriched with detailed illustrations and photographs, and brings Post’s story to another generation.
