The first pilot to fly around the world in a homebuilt plane tells his remarkable story in this memoir of determination, courage and adventure.

After beating cancer, Manuel Queiroz was ready to take on a life-changing goaland decided that he would fly solo around the world. Five years later, he not only fulfilled that dreamsetting six world speed records in the processbut did it in a plane he built himself. Now he shares the incredible story of his record-breaking journey in Chasing the Morning Sun.

Over the course of thirty-nine days, Manuel flew 27,056 miles, making eighteen stops in twelve different countries. With no copilot to take over the controls or ground staff to handle repairs, Manuel flew through sandstorms in the Saudi desert and faced the ever-present threat of mechanical failure over an inhospitable ocean.

Manuel was honored by the Royal Aero Club with their highest award, the Britannia Trophy, which was bestowed on him by His Royal Highness the Duke of York. Chasing the Morning Sun is both a rousing tale of adventure and the inspirational story of a man realizing his lifelong ambition.
