The Glorious Flight: Across the Channel with Louis Bleriot

Alice & Martin Provensen

“This book…recounts the persistence of a Frenchman, Louis Bleriot, to build a flying machine to cross the English Channel…. The text is succinct, caption-like in its directness and brevity….The paintings…add the necessary testure and tone to this marriage. This is vintage Provensen” – School Library Journal
