Two young boys
An amazing encounter
The journey of a lifetime
To ride the wind….

Many years ago, a small aircraft was attempting to fly from North America to Italy. It got into difficulty and had to crash land in Co. Clare, Ireland. This is the story of how two young brothers saw the crash and got to meet the pilot and co-pilot who luckily escaped the crash uninjured. The young boys were so amazed seeing an aeroplane up close, they decided to build their own aeroplane. They gathered all the parts they needed and learned many new skills about how to build and fly an aeroplane. World War II slowed down their plans, but eventually, they were able to complete the task they had set themselves! It was an amazing achievement and they made history! What amazing thing would you like to do?

    This is a charming story that can teach and entertain young and old alike. Beautifully illustrated, well crafted and the addition of the actual newspaper articles makes it! You just never know what chance encounter is waiting out there to inspire. An ideal present for under the tree this Christmas and a slice of Irish history that needs to be shared.

    Based on fact this well written story is a joy to read. It tells of creativity, energy and risk taking. Treat yourself to this delightful book and treat a young person that you love to another one.
    I did just that.
