Coosa Flyer by Wally Avett

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Man CAN fly! Man can FLY! MAN CAN FLY!!! To soar like a bird was unthinkable in the late 19th century.

The Wright brothers were only 7 and 3 years old, when a relatively uneducated backwoodsman from the hills of Georgia decided that man should be able to fly and he was determined to find the secret! Of course, his neighbors and on-lookers knew that he was absolutely crazy - but that only fed fuel to the fire. This is his story. The story of a man driven by an idea; a man with a mission; a man with a vision. After all, he reasoned that if a man could float on water, he could also float on air.

Despite the ridicule and mocking, Micajah Clark Dyer was a man determined. Determined to prove the naysayers wrong. A man, relatively unknown and unrecognized by the public even today, but a man who pursued his dreams. A man who achieved the impossible. A man who flew!

Inspired by a True Story

The life story of Micajah Clark Dyer is filled with innovative inventions unimagined in the 1800s. Among his works was a primitive aircraft that pre-dated all known efforts to create a flying machine. His successes, and his failures, as well as his compassion for others identify Dyer as a most unique individual of the era.
