A Hunters Fireside Book: Tales of Dogs, Ducks, Birds and Guns by Gene Hill

Long before the Wright brothers made their famous flight, a young boy from Baltimore became the first person ever to travel by air-in a hot-air balloon. One of the most exciting ways to fly, the air balloon was invented in 1783, although it would take another ten years before a balloon was built that was ready to carry human passengers. Aviation aficionados and indeed all readers will be fascinated by this time before airplanes when an ordinary boy experienced what seemed like an impossible dream-to fly. Jean Van Leeuwen turns this remarkable story into a captivating read and also includes a detailed historical note, while Marco Venturas lovely oil paintings perfectly evoke eighteenth-century Colonial America.
