    Hardcover Å Sky Sailors Epub æ sailors epub, Sky Sailors PDFEPUBWho knew From 1783 lots of people tried various ways to fly in balloons At first it was considered far too dangerous for people so animals were sent up but soon people were trying all sorts of dangerous tricks flying at high altitudes setting off fireworks from their balloons traveling across water All of this of course was fraught with danger so the public loved it Improvements in materials and methods were made over time but the thing that drew people to attempt balloon flight and that drew people to watch it was the danger and the thought that people could overc

    Hardcover Å Sky Sailors Epub æ sailors epub, Sky Sailors PDFEPUBThis is one of those fun historical books for kids that are a hard sell to get children to read because the era of ballooning feats is so far in the past that kids can't begin to think it would be interesting For adults it's a uick rollicking tour through an era of derring do that we have no idea existed The author weaves together technological developments and human stories many of them about women balloonists than you would ever imagine against a historical backdrop of America and Europe mostly France It all ends with the story of a fearless woman parachutist another aspect of ballooning that was unknown to me before I read the book Reading this work is a pleasant way to spend a couple of leisure hours the challenge is to convince my daughters to read it too

    Hardcover Å Sky Sailors Epub æ sailors epub, Sky Sailors PDFEPUBGreat nonfiction about the roughly 120 year period when people used balloons for science exploration and thrill seeking The book is split into parts that chronicle different individuals who took to the skies in balloons some stories end in triumph others end in tragedy Woven into the stories are explanations of how the balloons were made and how they worked This book is very accessible for readers who normally don't like nonfiction due to the way it is split into chunks as well as the appeal of this dangerous era
