Harold's Field
Barnstormers on the Frontiers of Flight
by Myrna Brown

To fly a biplane you need a rock, a string, and a clock. Will is fifteen when he leaves his father’s house forever, ready to take to the sky. It is the earliest days of barnstorming, and Will starts out with nothing but a dream: he’s determined to build a Jenny biplane, an air show, and a future. Will’s Flying Circus will serve up fancy flying, wing walking, contraband hooch, and good American hot dogs. That dream proves hard to keep aloft when Will is torn between the love of two women, and he faces hardship alone when his dream harms some of his friends. His family grows and responsibility weighs on his lighter-than air plans. Can Will find a way to keep his loved ones grounded and safe . . . and still aim for the sky?
