Jim Wells, a poor, God loving, Alabama farm boy dreamed of being a pilot. He rose successfully from transmission repair technician, to business owner, to instrument rated commercial pilot with more than 10,000 hours as a charter and air ambulance pilot doing things in airplanes that no one had ever done before. His memoir chronicles his experiences as a baseball player with the University of Akron, Ohio, and as coach and player of baseball and basketball in West Virginia and Alabama. He tells of flying as a charter pilot in Alabama, Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Texas, Virginia and West Virginia, and as a crop-duster in Texas. Wells was a flight instructor and was airport manager in many of these locations, including Gulf Shores, Alabama, Colorodo River Indian Reservation in Arizona, and Freemont County and Salina in Colorado.
