Description
Stephen Coonts, New York Times bestselling author of Flight of the Intruder, Under Siege, and Cuba, has been hailed as the best contemporary author writing about flying. In The Cannibal Queen, he turns his storytelling genius to nonfiction with an exultant account of the summer of '91 -- of three glorious months spent exploring America from the cockpit of a 1942 Stearman vintage biplane. Joining the ranks of John Steinbeck and Charles Kuralt, Coonts takes us on an extraordinary adventure, touching down in all forty-eight of the continental United States, from sea to shining sea.

display_description The compelling real-life adventure from New York Times bestselling author Stephen Coonts. Bestselling author Stephen Coonts's stirring ode to aviation: a revealing account of his three months spent exploring small-town America from the skies. Stephen Coonts spent the summer of 1991 cruising above rivers, farms, mountains, and swamps in the Cannibal Queen, his restored 1942 Boeing-Stearman open cockpit biplane. With his fourteen-year-old son, David, along for the ride, Coonts explored the diverse landscapes of the forty-eight contiguous states, touching down in each one to record the untold stories of America's countryside. The result is The Cannibal Queen, a striking memoir that features all the technical aviation know-how of Coonts's acclaimed thrillers, but with the spotlight focused squarely on the beauty of rural America and the spirit of those who live there. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Stephen Coonts, including rare photos from the author's personal collection.
