Barnstormers and Speed Kings is one of twenty-three volumes in the Time-Life book series The Epic of Flight. This series traces the adventure and science of aviation, from the earliest manned balloon ascension through the era of jet flight. This volume is an overview of the early years of exhibition flying and air racing during the 1920s and 1930s. The book opens with a portrayal of the barnstormers and their daring and dangerous aerial antics; many barnstormers were pilots trained during World War I but did not see combat action. Flying circuses are covered in Chapter Two.
