The Book of Flying eBook

The Fantastic Flying Books of Morris Lessmore has beautiful illustrations. That is what initially drew me to this book. That is what initially drew me to this book. They are full of rich colors and they tell just as much of the story as the words do, and that is my favorite kind of story book.

In Keith Miller's debut novel, our hero is Pico, a poet and librarian who is and forbidden to pursue the girl of his dreams - for she has wings, and Pico does not. When he discovers an ancient letter in his library telling of the mythical Morning Town where the flightless may gain their wings, he sets off on a quest. It's a magical journey and coming-of-age story in which he meets a robber queen, a lonely minotaur, a cannibal, an immortal beauty, and a dream seller. Each has a story, and a lesson, for Pico-about learning to love, to persevere, and, of course, to fly. A gorgeously poetic tale of fantasy for adults, "The Book of Flying" is a beautiful modern fable and daring new take on the quest narrative.

The Art of Flying explores its fascinating evolution, curating a vibrant cultural history from the mid-twentieth century to the present. From technological developments such as pressurized cabins Beginning with the jet age of the 1940s and 1950s, air travel has been at the forefront of technology, culture, and luxury.
