5-0 out of 5 stars I learned some things I didn't know before
I had never seen anything written by the Wright Brothers before, so that was really interesting.The rest of the book covers developments in Europe -- even though the airplane was invented in the US, most of the practical work was done after that in England and France.I found the part about the early balloonists who flew before the Wright Brothers to be very interesting, as there doesn't seem to be much written about them.It also covers early aviators like Bleriot and Santos Dumont.

3-0 out of 5 stars A mixed bag
The first three articles by Orville and Wilbur Wright were very good.Written by the two people on earth that really knew what they were doing.
The last section by Claxton, regretably taking up most of the book, primarily deals with the history of aviation in England before and during WWI. Unfortunately, this section was of limited interest to me. ... Read more

Editorial Review

Product Description
Of all man's great achievements none is, perhaps, more full of human interest than are those concerned with flight. We regard ourselves as remarkable beings, and our wonderful discoveries in science and invention induce us to believe we are far and away the cleverest of all the living creatures in the great scheme of Creation. And yet in the matter of flight the birds beat us; what has taken us years of education, and vast efforts of intelligence, foresight, and daring to accomplish, is known by the tiny fledglings almost as soon as they come into the world.

It is easy to see why the story of aviation is of such romantic interest. Man has been exercising his ingenuity, and deliberately pursuing a certain train of thought, in an attempt to harness the forces of Nature and compel them to act in what seems to be the exact converse of Nature's own arrangements.

One of the mysteries of Nature is known as the FORCE OF GRAVITY. It is not our purpose in this book to go deeply into a study of gravitation; we may content ourselves with the statement, first proved by Sir Isaac Newton, that there is an invisible force which the Earth exerts on all bodies, by which it attracts or draws them towards itself. This property does not belong to the Earth alone, but to all matter--all matter attracts all other matter. In discussing the problems of aviation we are concerned mainly with the mutual attraction of The Earth and the bodies on or near its surface; this is usually called TERRESTRIAL gravity.

Editorial Review

Product Description
The safe descent of the three animals, which has already been related, showed the way for man to venture up in a balloon. In our time we marvel at the daring of modern airmen, who ascend to giddy heights, and, as it were, engage in mortal combat with the demons of the air. But, courageous though these deeds are, they are not more so than those of the pioneers of ballooning. ... Read more
