Nine-year-old Ron loves books on airplanes and flight at the Lake City Public Library. Now Ron is ready to borrow books by himself, but in segregated South Carolina (1950s) blacks were not allowed to get a library card. Instead of being defeated, Ron sees obtaining a library card as a mission. This inspirational story is based on the life of Ron McNair, the future scientist and Challenger astronaut, who desegregated his library through peaceful resistance.
