Stock Description, May Not Reflect Item

As a first-grader in a one-room school in Kansas in 1927, Edgar Allen could not muster the courage to ask his teacher for permission to miss school to attend his first air show. Seemingly a lifetime later, in 1948, the same reticence nearly kept him from speaking up and preventing his future wife from slipping through his fingers. In the interim, he had fulfilled his dream of learning to fly and had faced enemy fire, bad weather, equipment problems, and the privations of wartime Britain to return his crew and himself safely from 30 bombing missions in World War II. In the year since the heroism of the 9/11 firefighters, many have wondered how they would perform in such a crisis. Edgar Allen illustrates how it is possible for an ordinary person to rise to the occasion. In PILOT FROM THE PRAIRIE, he modestly tells his story in a series of episodes as uncomplicated as the Kansas farm boy this combat veteran never ceased to be.
