Description

By Jennifer Bradley. Illustrations by Rob Cowan. Published by Woodslane Press.

Jessica Mackay has one dream – to be a pilot. Jessica lives on her family farm at Narromine, New South Wales, in the 1920s and 30s and even though women were among the first people to take on the challenge of the skies, Jessica’s ambitions are not supported by everyone. Jennifer Bradley’s story of a young girl’s passion for flying is based firmly on actual events in the fledgling Australian aviation industry.
