Summary
This story of aviation moves from the early Anglo-French balloon rivalries and the firework flights of Sophie Blanchard to the long-distance voyages of American entrepreneur John Wise and French photographer Felix Nadar and to the terrifying high-altitude flights of James Glaisher. Listeners will discover the many writers and dreamers who felt the imaginative impact of flight and allowed it to soar in their work. This is a subtle portrait of human endeavor, recklessness, and vision
