In the cloud-washed airspace between the cornfields of Illinois and blue infinity, a man puts his faith in the propeller of his biplane. For disillusioned writer and itinerant barnstormer Richard Bach, belief is as real as a full tank of gas and sparks firing in the cylinders...until he meets Donald Shimoda--former mechanic and self-described messiah who can make wrenches fly and Richard's imagination soar....

I remember only that it was a great, great disappointment.
A few short years ago I would have given this a five-star rating. I was in LOVE with this book and read it again and again over many years' time. Since then my beliefs have changed drastically and I no longer believe the principles herein, but it's still a good, simple story. I like the character...
