KIRKUS REVIEW

This exploration of flight from its beginnings to the jet age is packed with facts and bits of curious information. The readers will be surprised by unusual events which resulted from man's attempts to soar above the world-- the efforts of the Union Balloon Corps in the Civil War; the short flight of the strange manless erodrome, the wild antics of the barnstormers. The text is clearly written and is dequately supported by simple pencil sketches, which are numerous. Boys will appreciate this brief history of flight.
