BEHIND THE SMILE During the Glamour Years of Aviation

by | Read by Heather Burdette

Biography & Memoir • 4.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2013

In the 1960s, international airline stewardesses were highly trained and well paid, and they frequented fine hotels and restaurants. Stories of these glory days are narrated by Heather Burdette. The author, a stewardess during those years, literally makes an around-the-world journey as she shares her fascinating adventures. As Wolverton, Burdette is delightful--and sometimes wily. She also deftly presents "the stew's" heavily accented international co-workers and a lively array of worldwide passengers. Even the airplane's public address system adds authenticity. Listeners join Wolverton in the sky as she doles out cigarettes and vast quantities of liquor to her grateful passengers. Most moving are the stories of the soldiers who are ferried to and from Vietnam during the war years. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2014]
