As a youngster growing up during the '30s, monies were short and books were a treasure to have. Of the few books in my library then, my favorite was "The Red Eagle" and I read and re-read that book perhaps hundreds of times. Beyond the adventures of two young boys and their introduction to aviation and flying, the book captures young readers with the quality and number of colored illustrations that both dramatize the story and educate young ones to the parts of airplanes and their function. Although dated by today's technology advances, the basics of aviation and the components of aircraft still apply, albeit in 1930s graphics as opposed to the modern jet powered age. The book is an easy reader for children at the 3rd grade level, and the illustrations will capture even a younger child's imagination. Over the years I have treasured this book and still take my copy down from the shelf to peruse the story and illustrations and recall the years of my youth and the many times I read that book. I have purchased copies that I have given to my two sons, and have also provided copies to my grandsons. It is a legacy that I believe is timeless and worthy of becoming a valued addition to every young aviation enthusiast's library.
