Summary
"Ten exciting stories tell of the success and failures of many famous inventors and pilots in the quest for flight. Stories include: the first hot-air balloon to carry people, the Wright brothers and the first airplane, Charles Lindbergh's nonstop flight from New York City to Paris, Amelia Earhart's attempt at a round-the-world flight, breaking the sound barrier, and Felix Baumgartner's skydive from space. Feature boxes add additional details and simple maps help readers better understand the flight paths."--
