Book Review: Mavericks of the Sky

September 14, 2018 Leave a comment

“Mavericks of the Bureacracy” might be a fair alternate title for this book. While plenty of ink and/or pixels are devoted to pilots and planes, budget battles in Congress; political infighting between the Postmaster General and the U.S. Army for control of the air mail program; technological competition between planes, trains & automobiles; and postal officials butting heads with their own pilots over schedules versus safety form the back story of the government’s efforts to establish mail delivery by air. The events here predate Charles Lindbergh and Juan Trippe, so Rosenberg offers a unique perspective on the subject. I’m amazed he resisted the obvious comparison to the Pony Express—brave men relaying the mail across the county. (4 of 5 Stars)
