The Miracle of Flight by Stephen Dalton

"The Miracle of Flight explores how animals evolved wings and how humans have conquered the skies-from the often disastrous early experiments to the Wright brothers' history-altering flight of 1903. The subsequent development of jumbo jets, supersonic fighters and the exploration of outer space is spell-bindingly narrated.

"This volume's simplicity of prose and elegance of illustration cannot fail to delight teen readers. Dalton explains and demonstrates the physics of flight in a straightforward style. In the process of educating readers, however, the author's love for his subject and his belief in its magic come through. Full-color photos, charts, graphs, and diagrams grace every glossy page of this well-produced book. Dalton captures on film the beauty and wonder as well as the science of both natural and human flight, from the breathtaking time-lapse sequences of a hummingbird to an aerial view of the supersonic Saab Gripen fighter. This scholarly yet enthusiastic work will be a treasured addition to any library." - Becky Ferrall, Stonewall Jackson High School, Manassas, VA Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
