Stories of American Heroes - Brought to you from the "Home of Heroes" - Pueblo, Colorado


The Printable Book

Wings of Valor is the title we have given to our on-going series of stories detailing the history of our Nation's heroes from that first historic flight at Kitty Hawk to the creation of the United States Air Force.  There web-series can be read at www.HomeOfHeroes.com/wings.  For those who wish a printable copy, we are preparing what will eventually be a 3-volume set in printable, full-color book format, that you can download from this page.

Volume I

Volume I is the first in the series and covers the period from the Wright Brothers first flight up to World War I (the last chapter details the service and heroism of Charles Lindbergh and Eddie Rickenbacker in World War II.)  This is a 251-page, full-color book complete with appendixes.  Once you download the file, you may print as many as you wish, so that you can share it with others.  This books makes a very attractive gift, especially if you have a friend or family member in military service.

For information on how to customize it, or have it bound locally after printing, click HERE.

We provide the files for this book in two different formats:  Microsoft WORD and .PDF.  If you have WORD 2000 or later, we recommend this version.  All of these are large files that will take some download time.  The single WORD file will take at least an hour on a dial-up modem.  The .PDF version had to be split into three separate parts, each of which will take half-an-hour or more to download it.  Be patient...it's well worth the wait.  Once downloaded you can save the file to your hard drive and print any time, and as often, as you wish.

STEP 2:  When Adobe Acrobat Reader is installed on your computer, the electronic book files will open when you click on the hyperlink to the book you want.  (Because these files are larger than a typical web page, it may take several minutes before you see the file on your monitor.)

STEP 3:  You can print the opened electronic book simply by clicking the PRINT icon on the Adobe Acrobat Reader tool bar.  The pages are in REVERSE ORDER, so they will be collated by the time the printing is done.  If you only want ONE copy of the book, that is your best option.  If you plan to print more than one copy, or to reprint in the future, you can save the file to disk and open it without download delay as many times as you wish.  To download the opened Adobe .pdf file to disk, click on the SAVE icon (circled in red), then choose the destination where you wish to save the file.
