Product Description:

In the pioneering days of aviation, people were risking their very lives to try to accomplish new things. Here is the story of Frenchman Louis Blriot, a pioneer who was as keen about building and flying his machines as the Wright brothers were. While he was not the first to fly, he was the first to fly across the English Channel after experimenting with many different planes. This simple story, with large colorful illustrations, tells of his first encounter with flying machines and chronicles his successes and failures in the build-up to his triumphant flight across the channel. ~ Zach
