He also embarks on crazier and more twisted adventures in hysterical history . These involve Aaron Burr, Andrew Jackson, and Abraham Lincoln , among other historical figures . All of the antics are, you'll remember, are brought on by an eagle brain poisoned by environmental pollutions. In his human form ,Luke struggles to make sense of men, women, and his own personal conflicts. State of Flight ends with blunders and the death of the author. But fear not, readers, Volume Three will be written by a new writer named Raguan Z. Faust and Luke's human and eagle adventures will be even more profound and significant.
