About this title


Describes the exploits of the first pilots to fly around the world

From School Library Journal:

Grade 4-8-- In this age when flying is so commonplace, it may be hard for children to fathom the trials and tribulations of early aviators. Tessendorf captures the excitement as he recounts in great detail the exploits of the four teams who made the first successful around-the-world flight in 1924. He begins with a double-page world map showing the route, and then describes the crews, the massive preparations, and the actual flight with all of its problems and near and real disasters. Written in a smoothly flowing style, the text is divided into 12 chapters. Illustrations include vintage black-and-white photos of the people and planes as well as reproductions of paintings that depict some of the phases of the trip. This is no ordinary airplane book; it's the story of eight heroic individuals and the period in which they flew. A real eyeopener--even for aviation enthusiasts. --Eldon Younce, Harper Elementary School, KS
