Howard Miner was a student at a small Midwestern college when the War
broke out. His journey through training and tours of duty as a PBY
pilot in the South Pacific are skillfully captured in his art and
narratives, framing a wartime drama with a personal coming of age story.
This memoir has been reconstructed from a small library of unpublished
artwork, journal entries, and writing, providing an enjoyable behind the
scenes look at the Navy Black Cats. The descriptive verse from the
artist’s viewpoint gives us a creatively told and intriguing portrayal
of WWII’s Pacific Theater. Color paperback 156 pages.
