About the Author

CarolAnn Garratt is an 1800 hour pilot who started flying in high school and soloed in a Citabria in 1972. Prior to this trip, Carol Ann flew across the US to Colorado in 2000 and to Alaska in 2001. Her over water flying experience consisted of three trips to the Bahamas and crossing Lake Michigan four times.

She didn't fly much during her "work-a-holic" days while climbing the corporate ladder, but after losing her job in 2001 she has flown Young Eagles and Angel Flights as well as obtained her CFI and CFII. She planned this Around the World Adventure in 2002 and had the fun of making it a reality in 2003. She also flew Young Eagles in various countries during her journey.

Carol Ann dedicated this trip to her mother, Marie, who died of ALS/Lou Gehrig’s disease and one of her objectives was to increase awareness of this devastating disease and to raise donations for research. So far, she has succeeded in raising almost $27,000. 100% of all book revenue goes directly to researching a cure for this disease.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Kenneth B. Sherman on July 13, 2006
Format: Paperback
As an ATP/CFI/retired Naval Flight Officer with 8,000 hours, let me say that this is one of the best flying books I have read. The author captures all the feelings of anyone embarking upon such a daunting adventure. Ms. Garratt followed routes in one small, single-engine plane what we did in a four-engine, 135,000 pound Navy P-3 -- an amazing feat. Her descriptions of the flight and the places and people she met come to life.

That the book is dedicated to Ms. Garratt's mother and that all proceeds go to fighting ALS (which ended her mother's life) make the book all the more worthwhile. The book is liberally filled with pictures and diagrams, further enhancing the read. I highly recommend this book.
