In this Book

summary
Exuberance is a sequence of persona poems set in the early twentieth century when aviation became a national craze. “Flying Lessons” teach readers to name the clouds, size up the winds, mix an Aviation Cocktail, perform a strange field landing, and make an emergency jump. Daring women pilots challenge the men—all of them little-known historical characters. Money matters to the stunt fliers, but does the sheer exuberance of being in the air.
