by Catherine C. Morgan
Young Bruce Morehead set out to have fun in life because it had been denied him in childhood as his family had barely eked out an existence in early 1900ís Oklahoma. He joined the military and little did he know his experience as a child would give him the strength and power to become a winner. He came to be one of the most respected and accomplished fighter pilots of World War II, and avid and astonishingly successful hunter and fisherman, and a warm, caring family man and friend.
Within these pages, Catherine C. Morgan presents the complete account of Moreheadís life to date, characterizing one manís endeavors to follow his dreams, sometimes in the face of daunting odds, and his zest for life. Intertwining personal reflections with accounts of some of the more decisive moments in American history, the story is designed to commemorate Moreheadís contributions as well as to impart a message about the capacities of the human spirit.
