Summary
  • Wrong Way" Corrigan said he would fly to California but actually ended up in Ireland. Beryl Markham, the first woman in Africa to obtain a commercial pilot's license, accepted the challenge of a solo transatlantic flight on a dinner-party bet. Bessie Coleman, a black woman born into a world of poverty and racism in Texas, became a top-notch stunt pilot and dreamed of opening a flight school for African-Americans
  • Indeed, the history of the ancient human desire to defy gravity is of necessity the history of colorful dreamers possessed of imagination, dedication, and derring-do. By bringing together this collection of dynamic personalities and their trailblazing exploits, Bo Zaunders and Roxie Munro make us realize the collective physical and emotional toughness -- some might even call it madness -- that led the way to our present-day mastery of the sky. Often humorous, always inspiring and thought-provoking, this is nonfiction at its best
