2015 Kindle Update for "Miraculous Air: Journey of a Thousand Miles through Baja California, the Other Mexico"

I've posted a few updates on the website for Miraculous Air-- new excerpts, interviews, etc. Plus there is an all-new cover for the Kindle edition, this one featuring the painting "Sunrise Over the Sierras," by Michael Cope, an American artist and founding owner of the Galería de Todos Santos in Baja California Sur, Mexico. (Plus, I corrected a few stray typos and such.)

Here is the all new cover for the Kindle edition:

By the way, if you already own the Kindle edition, simply ask amazon customer service to update your copy. (It isn't automatic, alas, but if you email their customer service, as has been my experience, they will update it for you lickety-split.)

Here is the previous Kindle cover from 2011:

(It's main virtue, methinks, is that it skips ye-olde-cardon-cactus-by-the-sea.)

And here is the paperback edition cover, available from Milkweed Editions (2007):

It features the charming painting by Aligi Sassu of the Angel of Loreto carrying the Santa Casa, the house of the Virgin, to Loreto, Italy. Our Lady of Loreto is the patron saint of Baja California, and of aviators.

And here is the hardcover, published by the University of Utah Press (2002):
