Item description for Capt Jepp and the Little Black Book: How Barnstormer and Aviation Pioneer Elrey B Jeppesen Made the Skies Safer for Everyone by Flint Whitlock & Terry L. Barnhart...

This is the story of the man, Elrey B. Jeppesen, and it is the story of America's early commercial aviation. The two are inextricably intertwined.

This is a story rich in aviation history, and it is the poignant success story of an immigrant's son.
