Love begins to triumph over his earlier feelings ofabandonment only to end in heartbreak. No stone is left unturned in Davids candidaccount of his adventures, from cleaning cars to save for flying lessons, tobecoming one of the youngest and most skilful pilots ever to land a plane whereeven angels would fear to tread. Yet along the way, he meets once more withlove and true friendship. He gives back unstintingly the loyalty he receives,not only from the extraordinary friends in high places, but to the ordinary andmisfortunates he meets on the streets of Caracus.
