The Glorious Flight: Across the Channel with Louis Bleriot

By Alice Provensen, Martin Provensen

Once he sees a flying machine, Louis Blériot becomes passionately interested in building his own machine and is successful on his eleventh attempt. Based on a true incident in France in the early 1900s, the biography is illustrated with pictures of shifting perspectives and touches of humor and views of a family growing older.
