The remarkable story of ‘Lucky’ Herschel McKee Barnstormer, war hero, test pilot, motor racer, scoundrel.  Written by Stephen Olvey 2008.

Whisky-drinking decorated hero of both World Wars, riding mechanic, race driver, barnstormer, test pilot, daredevil, part-time bigamist and full-time scoundrel.  Herschel Jessup McKee was all of the above.  A compulsive risk taker, he crashed in racing cars, on motorcycles and in airplanes, only ever suffering minor setbacks.  He had no fear, no worries, and was fatalistic to a fault.  Once you meet him, life’s never the same again.   Hardcover, 304 pages, black & white illustrations.
