B160 – Forgotten Eagle: Wiley Post, America’s Heroic Aviation Pioneer / by Bryan B. Sterling & Frances N. Sterling

From the dust jacket:  “Wiley Post set records.  In the summer of 1931, with navigator Harold Gatty, he flew his single-engine airplane, the Winnie Mae, around the globe in a record-breaking eight days.  Two years later, he shaved twenty-one hours off his own record, and this time he did it flying solo.  The country went wild;  in Wiley Post, a nation in the grip of the Great Depression found a hero, and in the flight of the Winnie Mae a legend.  History, though, has not been kind to Wiley Post.”  Hardcover, pp 371,
