Weather to Fly: A Novel in Stories
Christopher Legras (Author)
DescriptionWeather to Fly is a collection of adventure stories, tall tales in the great American tradition. Inspired equally by Mark Twain, Amelia Earhart, Pancho Barnes, and P. T. Barnum, they are war stories, ghost stories, and love stories. There's a World War II warbird that may or may not have a soul or a conscience; in an Alaska saloon a bush pilot who thinks he's dying reveals a long-hidden secret; and the unlikeliest of pairs fall in love in an airport terminal. By turns whimsical and heart-wrenching, like the best adventures, these stories never end up where you expect.
