A pilots' story by an experienced pilot. Two Volumes.

The major historical figures of the century will all appear as characters, while the full flavor and enigma of the Russian world will be developed much the same as Chikara!captured the essence of the Japanese...all in one powerful volume.
Danny Drumm's Heroes
A children's series. History of America wrapped around its heroes. Danny Drumm, a Civil War drummer boy, narrates to his little dog Shadow. Wonderfully illustrated in color. The appealing Shadow is in every painting, so the kids are going to lock on him and love him. Continuing from our beginnings chronologically, 3-4 books per year. Hardcover, now from Sunland Books. Deeply tested with teachers, this series will be primarily an elementary school teaching tool with wide ranging potential. Also to be published in Spanish in the future. And, of course, it's meant for Mama's (and Grandma's) lap reading. Should be an excellent library item as well.
