Description

NEBADOR - the incredible journey of five young adults from poverty and oppression to respected citizenship in the wide universe ... After training and practice at every aspect of atmospheric flight, and some hard lessons dealing with other cultures, Ilika and his crew depart on a grand tour of the planet. They learn from many challenges, and eventually receive their first passengers when they find a man and his daughter stranded on an ice continent. But their act of kindness nearly ends in disaster. - This book includes the short story "Kibi and the Search for Happiness" by Katelynn Persons, winner of the 2010 NEBADOR writing contest. - BOOK FOUR: FLIGHT TRAINING is the fourth book in the NEBADOR series. These stories are filled with wit-sharpening and skill-honing challenges - mental, emotional, and spiritual - for both the characters and the reader. It is truly a grand adventure in which the characters come to understand a beloved saying of the Nebador Transport Service: Personal power is the ability to stand on your own two feet, with a smile on your face, in the middle of a universe that contains a million ways to crush you. - This is the PAPERBACK GLOBAL edition in 10-point type.show more

About J Z Colby

Born in the Mojave Desert, J. Z. Colby now lives and writes deep in a forest of the Pacific Northwest. - He has studied many subjects, formally and informally, including psychology, philosophy, education, and performing arts, but remains a generalist. His primary profession as a mental health counselor, specializing with families and young adults, gives him many stories of personal growth, and the motivation to develop his team of young critiquers and readers. - All his life, he has been drawn toward a broad understanding of human nature, especially those physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual situations in which our capacity to function seems to reach its limits. He finds fascinating those few individuals who can transcend the limits of our common human nature and the dictates of our cultures. - In his spare time, he flies helicopters and airplanes. - Born and raised in Portland, Oregon until the age of fifteen, Katelynn Persons now lives and goes to school in Sandy, Oregon, where she continues her journey through her teenage years. - Although she is only sixteen, Katelynn finds much enjoyment in her passions for writing and theater. She hopes to graduate high school in 2012, and get college degrees in Writing and Broadcasting, and receive a minor degree in Theater. - This is Katelynn's first published piece of literature, and she hopes it won't be the last. If she isn't locked in her room typing away, you'd most likely find her with her few close friends, or out meeting new people, and trying to change the world one step at a time.show more
