About the Book:
The Sky Behind Me: A Memoir of Flying & Life is an aviation memoir, and much more. It's about life balance, resilience, grace and the necessity we all feel to take off again regardless of how hard we crash.
The Sky Behind Me is a true "lemons into lemonade" story of one man's resolve to use his skills as a pilot to fulfill the altruistic impulses of his childhood, and he succeeds beyond his wildest imaginings.
