Tifton woman writes history book

March 18, 2006

Albany -- One Tifton native was at Albany's Books-A-Million store signing copies of a book she wrote about a historical figure from her hometown.

Bonne Cella was signing copies of her book entitled "Fixing the Moon," which she wrote about the life of Tifton man Henry Tift Myers.

Myers was the very first presidential pilot. He flew for both Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Harry Truman, as well as several other world leaders.

Cella found Myers' life so intriguing because of his place in American History.

"I realized that the material was of historical value and it needed to be preserved protected and put in a library where others could enjoy it," said author Bonne Cella.

Myers died in 1968, but his son is still alive and lives in Tifton. "Fixing the Moon" is available at bookstores nationwide and online.
