Overview

In Ticket to Curlew, Sam Ferrier and his family moved to Canada and learned to respect their harsh new home and find beauty in its endless prairies. In this sequel, 11-year-old Josie, now well-settled in her new home, longs to have a friend her own age. So when a girl named Margaret moves to the area from England, Josie is thrilled to have a buddy for riding to school, exploring the mysterious, abandoned silver house, and dreaming about the future.

But what does the future hold for a young girl in 1918? Could Josie fly airplanes like her heroine Katherine Stinson? Will she be a teacher like Miss Barnett? What if she becomes like Margaret’s sad mother, who can’t bear to even unpack her fine English china in the crude sod house that is her new prairie home? Wings to Fly tells the powerful and poignant story of a young girl facing her future in the dramatic Canadian wilderness.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Mary Sue Preissner
Having settled into their family's new life on the vast Canadian prairie three years ago, Josie was excited with all of the new possibilities before her. What could the future hold for an 11-year old girl in 1918? She makes the acquaintance of Margaret, newly arrived to their isolated community from England. They share rides to school and a fascination for the "silver house." Following some surprising and unusual events, including nearly freezing to death, attending a mud-splattered tea party, investigating the mysterious visitor to the silver house, and surviving an epidemic, Josie learns that she does have choices for her future which are only bound by her own determination.

    Scores that Fly that High

    This is a GREAT book. It tells details about how life was when the first women airplane pilots were flying. It shows a perfect image and gives such a warm feeling... you can actually feel the summer heat... and the welcoming heart when the book is in winter. I highly recommend this book.
