Race for the Sky
By Dan Gutman

Ordered to practice his writing skills in the blank book his mother gave him, fourteen-year-old Johnny would rather go fishing near his home on North Carolina's Outer Banks and cannot think of anything important to write until two "dingbatters" from Ohio arrive in 1900 and try to build a flying machine.

My Reflections:
Diary format, airplanes. lots by this author. Good info at end.
