Like Sex With Gods
An Unorthodox History of FlyingeBook - 2003
Annotation "In Like Sex with Gods: An Unorthodox History of Flying, Bayla Singer offers a unique approach to humanity's fascination with flight. Rather than merely tracing the factual prehistory of flight up to the success of the Wright Brothers, Bayla Singer considers the interaction and influence of our dreams, fantasies, culture, and technology on the age-old quest to fly." "Filled with compelling stories and detailed illustrations, this book provides absorbing reading for aviation experts, those fascinated with the intimate relationship between technology and culture, and all of us who have even a passing interest in flying."--BOOK JACKET.
