It is 1921, the dawn of the “Age of Normalcy” and a return to the old ways that prevailed before the World War. Bigotry and intolerance drive Grace Dobbins and her beloved Anita out of their bucolic retreat on Long Island. Grace returns to the glittering but corrupt world of the Broadway theatre, and Anita finds an even truer love, a man she marries. Grace copes with her loss by re-making herself as a “sophisticated lady” and the right-hand of a powerful titan of the twentieth century stage. She routinely courts danger by flying the wood and fabric airplanes of her day and by becoming a celebrated wingwalker. The acute dangers of her aerial escapades prepare her for the most perilous stunt of her life.

SPORTS/HOCKEY "Although Jimmy never played professional hockey himself, he was born with an intense love for the game and has devoted his life to hockey. He lives and breathes the game. Hockey is better off because of Jimmy Devellano." —From the Foreword by Mike and Marian Ilitch, Owners, Detroit Red Wings "Though he has never scored a goal, blocked a shot or thrown a body check, Jim Devellano contributed to seven Stanley Cup championships over three separate decades. An accomplishment of that magnitude is testament to his foresight, his insight and his hockey sense." —Gary Bettman, NHL Commissioner "He is my mentor. He gave me my first opportunity to get into the business. When he came to Detroit, one of the things he talked about was he was never going to trade a draft pick. He's a tremendous architect." —Ken Holland, General Manager, Stanley Cup champion Detroit Red Wings "He had what I would consider an outstanding career. He started from the very, very bottom and has worked his way up to, I would say, the top echelon in the league. I made him look so good, Mike Ilitch called me and stole him to Detroit." —Bill Torrey, Former General Manager, New York Islanders "He is a truly respected hockey man who deserves all accolades that have been presented to him. However, where he has helped me the most is in understanding the sports environment in the city of Detroit. Jimmy spent countless hours advising me on this sports landscape upon my arrival in Michigan." —Dave Dombrowski, President & General Manager, Detroit Tigers (MLB) "For more than the past 40 years Jim Devellano has had his hands on the hockey pulse. His remarkable accomplishments make him a Hockey Icon. Congratulations." —Scotty Bowman, Consultant, Detroit Red Wings

As World War II comes to an end in 1945, President Franklin D. Roosevelt dies in office. Throughout the country, the greatest generation mourns its leader. A spring snowstorm in Western New York inaugurates the cold war. Chuck Hobbie is just a boy, born on unlucky Friday, April 13th, but fortunate to be a child in Buffalo. As all Buffalonians know, it is not a dazzling city, unless the sparkle of winter snow and the shimmer of reflected summer lights from Erie and Niagara count. Likewise, the city's citizens, families, and teachers are unremarkable, unless resilience, friendships, and quiet, day-to-day hard work matter. Buffalo's children are not special at all, except that they were raised in Buffalo, amid the history of the Niagara Frontier, by people who cared for them and institutions that prepared them to fly. Buffalo's west side is where Chuck comes of age, but his childhood experiences range from there to New Hampshire's White Mountains, a farm in Lewiston, N.Y., Holloway Bay in Ontario, and Alaska's Brooks Range. Join Chuck as he recalls in Buffalo Wings the childhood family, friends, teachers, and experiences that shaped his life in the decades before the assassination of John F. Kennedy.
