9780747271284: The greatest adventure: the balloonists' own epic tale of their round-the-world voyage.

They could no longer be the first to climb Everest, reach the North and South Poles, sail around the globe, but they could be the first to fly around the world in a balloon - and they were. Written by the pilots, this is the account of their epic success. They describe the difficulties they faced and overcame during this feat of endurance.
