Flying seemed more like fantasy than fact in its pioneer days, and Sherwood Harris captures all the color, daring-do, resourcefulness, mechanical ingenuity and perseverance that turned the dreams of daredevils into aviations triumph.

He begins withMoreFlying seemed more like fantasy than fact in its pioneer days, and Sherwood Harris captures all the color, daring-do, resourcefulness, mechanical ingenuity and perseverance that turned the dreams of daredevils into aviations triumph. He begins with the long, slow, arduous and often ridiculed experiment that culminated in Wilbur and Orville Wrights first successful flight- he continues through the years when the great Frenchmen Voisin, and Bieriot and the Brazilian Santos-Dumont dominated the skies- and in the final section he follows the course of flying between 1908 and this countrys entrance into WWI, an era when flying was the sport of the idle and eccentric rich, with vast cash prizes being offered for feats of incredible skill.

Through diaries, letters, newspaper stories and long-forgotten interviews, a whole age--a total world of man doing something for the first time--is brought vividly to life again.
