A Whisper from the Silent Generation

Pilots who have flown the U-2 high-altitude reconnaissance aircraft have two things in common: the courage to take her up and the skill to bring her home. This is the story of Don Wright, U-2 pilot 192, and his journey from South Buffalo, NY, at the depths of the Depression to the stratosphere at the height of the Cold War.

From 70,000 feet, Don has experienced a view of the Earth that is breathtaking. From his perspective looking back more than seven decades, he offers a view of history that is both entertaining and enlightening.

This is a book you won’t want to put down. It is a book you’ll be happy for your children to pick up.
