by C. Arthur Butler
This is a unique account of Arthur Butler’s amazing solo fl ight in 1931 in a tiny open aeroplane across half the world, with only the sun, stars, an unreliable compass and, on occasions, his instinct to guide him.
The adventures and near catastrophies met on the way were a test of great endurance and bravery. (Anna Yeats)
I had the privilege of reading this manuscript whilst Arthur was still alive, so am delighted that this story of blood, sweat and tears of early aviation has been published. (Nancy Bird)
