Description:

The paper examines two major similarities in terms of how bravery and risk-taking are handled in Tom Wolfe's, "The Right Stuff" and Ernest K. Gann's, "Fate Is the Hunter". The paper discusses how pilots in both books believe bravery means grace under pressure, and they also think that risk-taking is worthwhile as part of achieving professional obligations. The paper notes a big difference, however, that is that Wolfe's pilots (and astronauts) value status more than Gann's pilots, and, in a sense, Gann's men see what they do as more of a job while Wolfe's men see it as a sort of calling.
