Roscoe Turner was a record-breaking American aviator and
a three-time winner of the Thompson Trophy air race.  He
was widely recognized by his flamboyant style and his pet,
Gilmore the Lion.

During an eight-month period, Roscoe and Gilmore logged
over 25,000 miles in the air and the lion was a passenger
during multiple air speed record runs.  Read all about Turner
and Gilmore in Hensel's newest book.
