Falling Upwards: How We Took to the Air

Falling Upwards: How We Took to the Air


FALLING UPWARDS is a vivid group biography and adventure that tells how men and women first felt as they rose towards the clouds into a new dimension - of science, exploration, warfare, literature, discovery. Readers will also discover the writers - from Mary Shelley to Edgar Alan Poe, Dickens to Verne - who allowed the imaginative impact of flight to soar in their work. In exploring the interplay between technology and science fiction, the understanding of the biosphere, and the metaphysics of flight itself, Holmes offers another of his subtle portraits of human endeavour, recklessness and vision.
