A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

Looking back over 58 years of experience with gliders and sailplanes, the author tells a story of dedicated men and women in this first comprehensive history of soaring in the United States.

From Library Journal:

$39.95. sports This exhaustive and prodigious history of the Soaring Society of America is taken from club records and notes by the author, who was instrumental in developing the sport, which differs from glider flight in its use of special atmospheric conditions to climb to amazing altitudes. The book is heavy going, with scores of participants overshadowing the sketchy coverage of pivotal events, like technological changes and the way world affairs altered the sport. The book uses aeronautical terms to enlighten the flying fraternity, its exclusive audience. Be warned also that, in the galleys, the history ends at 1982. Scores of good photos lack allied information, which does little to attract the uninformed. For specialty collections. Mel D. Lane, Sacramento, Cal.
