Silver Wings by R. A. Montgomery takes YOU on an adventure flying above -- or crashing into! -- the Baja Peninsula. 9-12 year old readers will learn to perform under pressure, piloting a motor glider through inclement conditions, caring for navigator Isabel after she falls mysteriously ill, escaping the threat of violent bandits, and helping friends Peter and Josh after an emergency landing.

Choose Your Own Adventure Silver Wings is an interactive adventure book in which YOU decide what happens next.

After a year of flight training, a surprise trip to the Baja Peninsula puts your skills to the test -- but will they be enough to earn you your Silver Wings? Do you rush immediately to your friends' downed plane or wait till nightfall? Do you follow the shady character you spot snooping around the plane or stay hidden out of view? Who do you think tampered with your radio?

About the contributor(s)

R. A. Montgomery attended Hopkins Grammar School, Williston-Northampton School and Williams College where he graduated in 1958. He pursued graduate studies in Religion and Economics at Yale and NYU. Montgomery was an adventurer all his life, climbing mountains in the Himalaya, skiing throughout Europe and scuba-diving wherever he could. His interested included education, macro-economics, geo-politics, mythology, history, mystery novels and music. He wrote his first interactive book, Journey Under the Sea, in 1976 and published it under the series name The Adventures of You. A few years later Bantam Books bought this book and gave Montgomery a contract for five more, to inaugurate their new children's publishing division. Bantam renamed the series Choose Your Own Adventure and a publishing phenomenon was born. The series has sold more than 260 million copies in over 40 languages. He was married to the writer Shannon Gilligan. Montgomery died in November 2014, only two months after his last book was published.
