Description
 
A former Air Force pilot who flew F-86 fighters in more than 100 missions during the Korean War, Salter writes with matchless insight about the terror & exhilaration of the pilot’s life. A riveting combination of fiction, journals, & memoirs, this book is Salter’s own story. Gathering selections from his earlier novels, “The Hunters,” “Cassada,” & “Burning the Days,” it also includes selections from a journal Salter kept during the war. “It is, as a record of the day-to-day, mission-to-mission life of a young fighter pilot, a remarkable document by any standard. But it provides as well a view into the crucible of a writer’s beginnings, like pencil studies that precede a painting, in which the essential qualities of the artist’s hand are unmistakable.” Photos.
