    Nicknamed "the Suicide Club," the pilots of the air mail service were a brash collection of World War I aces who returned as heroes from Europe looking for a way to continue their obsession with flying. At a time before established air routes, when planes were still a developing technology, these proud, dashing, rebellious men pushed the limits of flight to the extreme-climbing into their flimsy wooden and cloth-covered biplanes to move the mail through torrential rain and blinding snowstorms, relying on their wits and instincts to keep them alive. Mavericks of the Sky recounts the crucial first three years of the U.S. Air Mail Service-from the inaugural New York-to-Washington, D.C., flight in 1918 through Jack Knight's desperate, against-all-odds night flight in 1921 that would determine the future of air mail. A unique tale of adventure, heroism, and suspense, Rosenberg and Macaulay's thrilling narrative brings to life the exploits of these fearless and colorful pioneers who were true symbols of the Jazz Age and the American spirit.

    Catherine Macaulay has contributed to many publications over the years. Her work has appeared in magazines ranging from E/The Environment Magazine to the Daily Racing Forum . Coauthors and partners, Rosenberg and Macaulay have shared their lives with a retinue of cats, dogs, and horses for the past two decades. Currently, they divide their time between Westchester, New York, and Calabasas, California.
