What did you love best about Horses Don't Fly?
I enjoyed this book when I was first given it by my great aunt. We are distantly related to the author Frederick Libbey so I may not be completely objective. I love the way he narrates the events of his amazing life in a modest and humorous way. His description of the late cowboy era and World War I aviation is amazing. He focuses on particular episodes in his life that he stumbles into more from curiosity and naïveté than planning. I very much like that he gives credit to all that help him and has a very positive outlook even in the midst of very depressing circumstances. I appreciated the book even more when I studied WWI history. The narration is absolutely superb. This is the finest pairing of wonderful story and excellent narration I have encountered.
Have you listened to any of Stephen Bowlby’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
No I haven't
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
This is a tough question since I enjoyed so much of the book. I really enjoyed the episode where he destroyed his fancy new Sunday suit by roping an antelope.

An enjoyable account of life from American cowboy to ace in the Royal Fighting Corps.
