Wild Blue, The


Walter Boyne

SKU: 4333 Category: Tags: ,


Very few aviation books make the New York Times Best Sellers List. Walter Boyne, former Director of the National Air & Space Museum, is probably the best-selling aviation author today. He and Steven L. Thompson, another noted author, teamed to create this blockbuster novel. This extraordinary work is viewed to be the “book of record” on the opportunities, struggles and achievements available to those who love aviation and combine this love with Air Force careers. It is considered more than a novel. Originally published in 1986 in hardbound and softbound (1987), it promptly sold out, and that was that. Now 13 years later it is available again. Some of the uncompensated praise reviews on the back cover: “impressive,” “a tremendous work,” a “must-read,” and a “wonderfully American story wonderfully told.”
