Abstract:

"Here is the story of three fiercely independent individuals: Kiffin Draper and Toby Bryant - pioneer airmen whose friendship was stronger than blood - and Toby's wife Lily, a woman unique in her time. They barnstormed together, flew through the first years of airmail, joined the Lafayette Escadrille, the Eagle Squadron, the Free French Air Force, to fight in foreign revolutions and both World Wars, sharing their magnificent adventures with the likes of Frank Whittle, Lindbergh, Amelia Earhart, Howard Hughes and many more. They were the last of a breed whose passions and aspirations were the stuff of soaring flight itself."--Publisher description.
