Synopses & Reviews
Here for the first time in a single volume are three of Richard Bach's most compelling works about flight.
From his edgy days as a USAF Alert pilot above Europe in an armed F84-F Thunderstreak during the Cold War to a meander across America in a 1929 biplane, Bach explores the extreme edges of the air, his airplane, and himself in glorious writing about how it feels to climb into a machine, leave the earth, and fly.
Only a handful of writers have translated their experiences in the cockpit into books that have mesmerized generations.
The New York Times A classic of men who sail the upper regions of the earth.
STRANGER TO THE GROUND Forty years after its original publication, Richard Bach's account of his perilous flight across Europe remains a compelling tale of danger and fear in the face of the unknown. BIPLANE Richard Bach takes to the skies in an antique aircraft in search of freedom, self, and a flat place to land in the beautiful and thought provoking Biplane. NOTHING BY CHANCE Memoir and meditation collide as Richard Bach reflects on his life in the air and his love of the mechanics, the freedom, and the possibilities of flight.
