A Time for Vultures


Available in hardcover exclusively on this site: " A Time for Vultures" - Mercury 13 member Jerri Truhill's husband Joe Truhill, has written a nail biter of a book about his flying escapades early on. This book deals with a time he and some others were falsely arrested in South America and managed to escape pretty much without the help of their own country, the United States, for political reasons. This escape was spearheaded by Jerri. Joe is quite a pilot and taught Jerri most of her flying skills which caused her to be selected for training as one of the Mercury 13. It's a book you'll be GLAD you got!
