Samantha Gibbons was a tomboy, born and raised in Boston, from a wealthy family who tried in vain to turn her into a 'lady'. Samantha, or Sam as she preferred, was eager to explore and lead a life of adventure, rather the tea and cake circle she was being forced into. Then she read about the Wright Brothers, Wilbur and Orville, and her life would change for ever. Buying her own aeroplane, she headed out into what was still termed as the 'Wild West'. What followed was an adventure filled with thrills, fear, danger and friendships, and a journey she would never forget.
