OAKLAND, Calif., June 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Flying the Edge of America is a non-fiction book for pilots, travelers, and adventurers written by David Millett and Julia Buss.

In the summer of 2008 they flew their small, single engine, airplane around the edges of the contiguous United States of America. Along the way they encountered small towns, National Parks, and National Monuments. On the most dangerous and exciting adventure of their lives Buss and Millett flew into unanticipated ghastly weather, thunderstorms, and brushed with hurricanes. The San Francisco Book Review says: "Flying the Edge of America authors Millett and Buss help readers feel what it's like inside the cabin of a small plane flying through difficult weather over dangerous terrain."

They discover a land much more complex than they had imagined, far larger than they could believe, and more beautiful than they dreamed possible. This new book is the story of their flight around the edge of America, and the journey that brought them to a deeper understanding and love of their adopted country. The Pacific Book Review says: "Together they unfold a duet of trust, friendship and invite you into a love story while masking it as an adventure chronicle."

Reviewers acclaim:

Marta Yamamoto from the Oakland Tribune says: "Through script and photographs, the authors hope readers see America through the lens of two new Americans."

The Midwest Book Review says: "With plenty of full color photos of their journey, Flying the Edge of America is an adventure story that may inspire imitators as it is one like none else."

AOPA recommends it: "For pilots who love reading about a good flying adventure..."
