1 Phears, Bill Ain't, But It Can Be
Baltimore, MD, U.S.A. Gateway Press 1989 SIGNED by the Author
Fine in a Fine dustjacket. Fully bound in blue cloth. The spine is stamped in gilt. 290pps., with numerous pages of photos. An excellent copy: clean, tight, square, and bright. All tips are sharp. The text is immaculate; no reading wear. The dustjacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, is as new. This book is from the personal library of Colonel Harry A. Sheppard, one of America's first black fighter-pilots and a highly-decorated World War II Tuskegee airman; his bookplate is affixed to the front pastedown. SIGNED and inscribed by the author 'To My Friend, Harry, A Highly-Respected Tuskegee Airman,' on the ffep. A very nice, one-of-a-kind association copy.

"...This autobiography is assembled with the hope that it might provide continued inspiration for our children, and grandchildren to enjoy life, but to be fully prepared for their chosen careers. They should understand that it is important to set goals, and to work hard to achieve these goals. I hope that they can see that the position of a depressed lifestyle is only a dissolvable impediment, not an impenetrable wall, to achieving a determined goal.
My constant struggle for equal rights included participation in 'The March on Washington' on August 28, 1963. However, it has always been my premise that one-on-one contact, is a fundamental concept, that augments the overall struggle for understanding, and equality. When education, fair treatment, honest competition, and individual ability flourishes freely, we will see black faces and reciprocal contributions in all walks of American life. To me, that's America..." -- from the author's Preface.
