The Story of an Aviator from the Amazing Wonders Collection is an ideal book for any young aviator. An insider’s story follows the early days of flight—and features a splendid model of a biplane inside.

Step back to the 1930s, when an ambitious flying ace vows to claim the prize for the first solo around-the-world flight. While readying his aircraft, he offers a richly illustrated look at the exploits of aviation pioneers before him—from the Wright brothers’ storied Flyer to Charles Lindbergh’s cross-Atlantic flight, from airplane racing and aerial stunts to William Byrd’s long-distance record and Amelia Earhart’s breaking of the gender barrier.

This 16-page hardcover book written by Marmaduke Randolph Calhoun is filled with diagrams, charts, vintage photos, maps, and is a lavish tribute to the early masters of the sky, who turned flights of fancy into real powered aircraft and soared straight into history. Perfect for children ages 6-9.
