Allen Herr's aviation stories document fearless risk takers with historical accounts of Northern California pioneer aviators, barnstormers, commercial flying, local aircraft builders, massive airshow turnouts, races, and airfield development from 1910 to 1939. His narrative features 94 illustrations, some published for the first time, with a focus on Butte, Yuba, and Sutter counties. Originally published in 2015 as Golden Wings Over the Feather River, this edition has added a few details and more photos. It is complemented by the historian's two other titles of early Northern California aviation--Wooden Wings Over the Golden Gate: Early Aviation in the San Francisco Bay Area 1910-1939 and Ragwings Over the Sacramento River: Early Aviation in Sacramento County, the Westside Counties, and the Far Northern Counties of the Sacramento Valley 1909-1939.
