KIRKUS REVIEW

A collection of prose and poetry follows the ""progress of flight and man's attitude toward it"". It is divided into five sections that run from before World War I, the years between wars, World War II and after; dreams and visions, attempts and accomplishments are here as are concepts of flight and the responsibilities of men as fliers. From Ovid and Milton, Johnson, Swift, and Poe, Tennyson, Whitman and Dos Passos; from Saint Exupery, Anne Morrow Lindbergh and many others come flashes, pictures and accounts of yesterday, today, and tomorrow's air age. An interesting assembly represents a swift advance.
