About the author

Daniel Ford was educated by the University of New Hampshire and the U.S. Army. Afterwards, he worked as a reporter while writing fiction in off-moments--often enough, riding a train through Germany to cover a court-martial for The Overseas Weekly. This was his first published novel, set in a college community like the one that eventually became his home town. Today, he writes about the planes, pilots, and politics of World War II and the Cold War. He has been a Fulbright Scholar in Britain, Stern Foundation grantee in Vietnam, Verville Fellow at the Smithsonian Institution, and Resident Scholar at the University of New Hampshire. At the age of 68, he learned to fly a Piper Cub almost as old as he was.
