KIRKUS REVIEW

In an age of rocket aircraft and outer space vehicles, balloons may seem archaic to the average man. Far from it. This concise history of ballooning tells us that the gas-filled sphere was not only our first means of flight but in the future will be one of our best means of outer space observation. This is a complete history of ballooning beginning with the Montgolfier flight in 1783 and ending with the recent flight up to 115,000 feet.
