This is a travelogue about a couple's adventures traveling around North America in an old Cessna. Aviation history is interwoven with an emphasis on women pilots

Buckle your seat belts, Lyrical Aviators is going to take you to destinations you've only dreamed about. Share in the excitement of an adventuresome couple as they journey through fast-changing landscapes, and learn of pirates, pilots, people and places. Meet the greats of aviation and celebrity pilots.

All over North America you will see places that only a jet-setting Cessna can take you! Soar with the couple as they fly along the corridors of the Grand Canyon, circle the volcanic crater of Mt. St. Helens, experience bush pilot flying in the passes of Alaska, traverse the Bermuda Triangle traveling to the Bahamas, and island hop over the beautiful turquoise waters of the Caribbean. The book is illustrated with about 50 maps and photographs.
Excerpt
If we crash, I hope we're rescued before the smoked oysters run out.

This gem of a book uses the history of aviation as a backdrop to the couple's personal travels in a small plane...Relates little known facts about pioneer pilots and inventors.

Combining prose and poetry, Sandra McClinton uses delightful imagery and powerful storytelling to celebrate aviation in Lyrical Aviators...Action packed adventure story...

Skillfully highlights aviation history...Tuskegee Airmen break racial barriers over the skies of Europe and change attitudes in America.
