“KHAQQ calling Itasca…We must be on you, but cannot see you—but gas is running low. Have been unable to reach you by radio. We are flying at 1,000 feet."
Seventy-five years ago, Amelia Earhart took off from New Guinea in her bid to finish her trip around the world along an equatorial route. She never made it, and a mystery was born. Did Earhart run out of fuel, crash and sink into the Pacific Ocean? Or did she land on Gardner Island and survive for a time as a castaway?
In his latest novel, The Canary, Michael Loyd Gray the author takes his readers back and forth in Amelia’s life: from her last flight to
her early childhood, cleverly using stream-of-consciousness narration.
