Bob, at any early age, had a dream of becoming an Air Force pilot. He devoted his life to achieving that dream. Along the way, he met not only skepticism from the society in which he lived, but also from his peers. Bob talks about the people he met growing up that had a profound impact on his life.
This is the autobiography of a black youth who was born in the Jim Crow south and discovered at a young age that he would not accept the status quo of being a second- class citizen. It deals with the struggles that he had to overcome in order to realize a lifelong dream. It is a story of growing up in the 1950s,1960s and 1970s in Madison, North Carolina.
The story is at times humorous and at times deadly. It is a story that dreams can come true.
