The book includes biographies of the people who were part of the state's aviation history, such as Thaddeus Lowe, Robert Fogg, Sr., the Granville brothers, Lee D. Bowman, W. Russell Hilliard, Alan Shepard, and Christa McAuliffe. The author, a licensed pilot and member of the Ninety-Nines, formerly wrote an aviation column for the Manchester Union Leader.
