In the summer of 2008 we flew
our small, single engine, airplane around the edges of the contiguous
United States of America. Along the way, we encountered America's small towns,
National Parks, and National Monuments. On the most dangerous and
exciting adventure of our lives we flew into unanticipated
ghastly weather, thunderstorms, and brushed with hurricanes. In the
end, we discovered a land much more complex than we had imagined,
far larger than we could believe, and more beautiful than we dreamed
possible. This book is the story of our flight around the edge of
America, and the journey that brought us to a
deeper understanding and love of our adopted country.

Gary Sorkin, Pacific Book Review
Together they unfold a duet of trust, friendship and invite you into a love story while masking it an adventure chronicle.

Through script and photographs, the authors hope readers see America through the lens of two new Americans.
