Publisher's Summary

In 1943, Eddie Larson went to war. He was sent to the far reaches of western China, to a place nestled in the shadows of the mighty Himalayas - the infamous Hump - to fly whatever aircraft he could coax into the skies. He was one of the youngest pilots in the China-Burma-India Theater. 

This is a story of manic devotion to airplanes and all things flying in a time when the world experienced vast and remarkable changes. It is a story of a life truly well lived - a story of joy, and commitment, and finding adventure in the face of danger...and it is a story about honoring those we have loved and lost. This is Ed Larson's story.
