Canadian Flights

by Peter C. Conrad

A book with a working title, Biplane Adventures, written in 1987-88 was a collection of historical creative non-fiction for young readers had been accepted for publication. It was an enthusiastic effort to use story telling to reach Canadian youth bringing excitement about Canadian history. The book had completed the editorial process and sent for typesetting when communication with the press went silent. Months later a package arrived with the finished manuscript and a hand written note explaining that the press had gone bankrupt.

With a new title, Canadian Flights, the search for a publisher continues.
