Summary
When Josie, who lives on a farm outside a small town in Canada in 1918 and has never even seen an airplane, reads about a female pilot, she dreams about being able to fly. By the author of Ticket to Curlew. Reprint.
Amazon.com description: Product Description:

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.
