This ode to the history of flight in Northern California guides aviation historians through the airplanes and aviators of Tehama, Shasta, Yolo, Sacramento, Colusa and Glenn counties between the years of 1909 and 1939.

If you love flying, agricultural, military or special events history, or even just the history of the Sacramento Valley, this is the book for you! --California State Library

Ragwings over the Sacramento River is one of three comprehensive books in a series of Northern California aviation history 1909–1939 covering the pioneer pilots, the new airports, the public's reaction to flying machines, and the entrepreneurs developing the new industry.
