“Peppered with photos and drawings, anecdotes and bits of science, this book chronicles humanity’s struggle to learn to fly. Included are the Montgolfier brothers and the hot-air balloon, Giffard and the dirigible, Lilienthal and the glider, Langley and the aerodrome, the familiar Wrights and the airplane, Curtiss and the seaplane, and Sikorsky and the helicopter. . . . This readable book will interest history, aviation, and biography enthusiasts alike.”
