Flying Over Brooklyn

by Myron Uhlberg

A magical story of how a young boy's everyday world is transformed into a snow-covered wonderland through the force of a blizzard and the power of a dream A YOUNG BOY trudges through deep snow in a neighborhood park. Suddenly a strong wind grabs his coat and lifts the child up into the air. Soon the boy is soaring high above his strangely silent, snow-covered neighborhood. As he flies over familiar sites--a bridge over a frozen river, a baseball field, and an amusement park--he gains a new perspective on the world around him. The boy's airborne adventure provides a magical--if temporary--escape from the routine of everyday life. In the end the boy returns to the safety of his home and family, but is left wondering: Was it all just a marvelous dream or did it really happen? Author Myron Uhlberg's story is based in part on his own childhood memories of the Great Blizzard of 1947 which blanketed Brooklyn and the surrounding area under several feet of snow. An author's note at the back of the book provides details about the snowstorm and places this fantasy in its historical context. Illustrator Gerald Fitzgerald's two-page, gently softened illustrations beautifully evoke the story's nostalgia and dreamlike quality.

The Flying Scotsman

by Bob Gwynne

Flying Scotsman is probably the most famous railway locomotive in the world. When it was new in 1923 it caused a sensation for its beauty and its speed, and the engine found itself at the center of media attention that continued throughout the decade and made it a household name - to see it was the ambition of every young trainspotter. But The Flying Scotsman was also a train. Since 1862 the 10am departure from London Kings Cross and Edinburgh Waverley had been the fastest and most comfortable way of travelling the length of the nation, and in 1923 it was officially titled The Flying Scotsman - a nickname it had been given many years earlier - and was confirmed as the most famous and prestigious train in the British timetable. Over the next fifteen years the train got faster and more luxurious, in response to competition from other routes, airlines and the motor car. From 1928 it began running non-stop, an achievement that earned it yet more attention. Until Mallard and its streamlined sisters took the train to even greater heights in the later 1930s, the apple green locomotives and teak carriages of The Flying Scotsman were a national icon, and never more so than when 4472, Flying Scotsman - the first locomotive to achieve an authenticated 100mph - headed the train herself.This superbly illustrated book introduces the route of The Flying Scotsman the development of the train from 1862 to the present, and the extraordinary story of the locomotive that now forms the centerpiece of the British National Collection.From the Trade Paperback edition.

The Flying Tigers

by John Toland

During World War II, a group of American fighter pilots roamed the skies over China and Burma, menacing the Japanese war effort without letup. Flamboyant, daring, and courageous, they were called the Flying Tigers. The Tigers, who had been recruited from the Army, Navy, and Marines, first saw action as a volunteer group fighting on the side of the Chiang Kia-shek's China against Japan.

This is the story of Chennault and his magnificent Tigers -- and how they performed the impossible.

Flynn

by Gregory Mcdonald

Ever since F. X. Flynn made his first appearance in Confess, Fletch, matching wits with the inimitable Irwin Fletcher, he has befuddled, infuriated, and amazed his colleagues on the Boston Police force while in pursuit of blackmailers, murderers, embezzlers, politicians, and, occasionally, his fellow policemen. It might have been an accident that brought down the Boeing 707 over Boston Harbor, virtually in Flynn's own backyard. But it seems unlikely, with so many potential targets on board: The heavily insured, elderly Federal judge; the has-been British actor; the middleweight champ; the Middle Eastern finance minister. The motive could have been greed, murder, revenge, or even terrorism-and it's up to the good inspector to get to the bottom of it.

Flynn's World

by Gregory Mcdonald

When Boston Police Inspector Francis Xavier Flynn's barely adolescent daughter asks him to rescue her friend Billy from the cemetery, where he's been fastened to a tree by a nail through his earlobe, the good inspector is pretty sure there's something more behind what at first seems like a bully's prank. And he's convinced there is more than mischief involved in the hateful threats against distinguished Harvard professor Louis Loveson. If that weren't enough to keep Flynn busy, there's Lieutenant John Kurt, whose very impressive arrest record follows some very disturbing patterns. In Flynn's World, two-time Edgar Award-winner Gregory Mcdonald's dogged detective confronts intolerance in all its guises, and sheds light on more than one dark secret. F. X. Flynn made his first appearance in Confess, Fletch,where he matched wits with the inimitable Irwin Fletcher. Since then he has befuddled, bemused, amazed, and infuriated his colleagues on the Boston Police force as he has pursued international terrorists, blackmailers, murderers, embezzlers, politicians, and, occasionally, his fellow policemen--all while doing his regular job.

Flywheel

by Eric Wilson Stephen Kendrick Alex Kendrick

What's the most important thing in your life? Jay Austin did what it took to get ahead and make the quick sell at work. Problem was--the more successful he was, the more he traded what really mattered. His integrity. His relationship with his wife. His time with his son. He was chasing things that had no eternal significance. It wasn't until God slowly unraveled everything that he saw how empty his life had become. Now it will take a courageous heart and a saving grace for Jay to finally turn his drive into a desire for a more authentic life with God as well as with his wife and son. In a world filled with cheap imitations that distract us from God's higher plans, Flywheel is a powerful parable for all who hunger to live an authentic life.

Fm

by Richard Neer

"It was all so honest, before the end of our collective innocence. Top Forty jocks screamed and yelled and sounded mightier than God on millions of transistor radios. But on FM radio it was all spun out for only you. On a golden web by a master weaver driven by fifty thousand magical watts of crystal clear power . . . before the days of trashy, hedonistic dumbspeak and disposable three-minute ditties . . . in the days where rock lived at many addresses in many cities. " -from FM As a young man, Richard Neer dreamed of landing a job at WNEW in New York-one of the revolutionary FM stations across the country that were changing the face of radio by rejecting strict formatting and letting disc jockeys play whatever they wanted. He felt that when he got there, he'd have made the big time. Little did he know he'd have shaped rock history as well. FM: The Rise and Fall of Rock Radio chronicles the birth, growth, and death of free-form rock-and-roll radio through the stories of the movement's flagship stations. In the late sixties and early seventies-at stations like KSAN in San Francisco, WBCN in Boston, WMMR in Philadelphia, KMET in Los Angeles, WNEW, and others-disc jockeys became the gatekeepers, critics, and gurus of new music. Jocks like Scott Muni, Vin Scelsa, Jonathan Schwartz, and Neer developed loyal followings and had incredible influence on their listeners and on the early careers of artists such as Bruce Springsteen, Genesis, the Cars, and many others. Full of fascinating firsthand stories, FM documents the commodification of an iconoclastic phenomenon, revealing how counterculture was coopted and consumed by the mainstream. Richard Neer was an eyewitness to, and participant in, this history. FM is the tale of his exhilarating ride. From the Hardcover edition.
