The Piper Company played a significant part in the boom in civil aviation by building airplanesCubs, Cruisers, Coupes, Vagabonds, Clippers, and Pacerswith simple designs at a reasonable cost. In this book, the section on each plane includes its standard equipment and product history and is accompanied by pictures, drawings, specifications, and performance data. There are personal accounts from pilots, brief discussions of the fortunes of the company, and a chapter on how to restore the classics with details on airframe, wing, and surface refurbishing and engine maintenance. A useful appendix lists suppliers of parts. Recommended where there is interest. William A. McIntyre, New Hampshire Vocational-Technical Coll. Lib., Nashua
