  • Overview

    The year is 1919 and, like the rest of St. John's, eight-year-old Ralph is caught up in the excitement and adventure of the latest attempt to cross the Atlantic Ocean by air. Alcock and Brown, two British flyers, are preparing for the flight in the field next to Ralph's home, and, although no one has yet been successful, they are confident that they will win the coveted London Daily Mail prize of £10,000.

    Amid all the excitement, Ralph learns from Mr. Brown that in spite of having to use a cane, he can accomplish much, and from his mother he learns that diligence has its reward.

  • About the Author

    George Morgan


    When George Morgan was a boy, he enjoyed the stories told by his mother, grandparents, aunts and uncles. When his children were growing up he told them the same stories.

    George recently retired as a printing instructor at the former Cabot College, and has since been more busy than he could have imagined - although never too busy to tell stories.
