In this heartwarming historical fiction story, after Wilbur saves her life, the permanently injured seagull Simone helps the Wright Brothers learn to fly. You get the expert gulls-eye view of humans achieving what most consider impossible. Step by step, Simone guides Will and Orv from steering a kite through kiting a glider, manned glider flight, and finally, powered flight. The action is real history, and the gull-to-man dialogue is both aeronautically insightful and emotionally sensitive. As Simone says, After all, these guys were only human. You go, gull!

The reissue of this definitive biography heralds the one-hundredth anniversary of the Wright brothers' first flight. Brilliant, self-trained engineers, the Wright brothers had a unique blend of native talent, character, and family experience that perfectly suited them to the task of invention but left them ill-prepared to face a world of skeptics, rivals, and officials. Using a treasure trove of Wright family correspondence and diaries, Tom Crouch skillfully weaves the story of the airplane's invention into the drama of a unique and unforgettable family. He shows us exactly how and why these two obscure bachelors from Dayton, Ohio, were able to succeed where so many better-trained, better-financed rivals had failed.

Why did the British, then the leading nation in science and technology, fall far behind in the race to develop the aeroplane before the First World War? Despite their initial advantage, they were overtaken by the Wright brothers in America, by the French and the Germans. Peter Reese, in this highly readable and highly illustrated account, delves into the fascinating early history of aviation as he describes what happened and why. He recalls the brilliant theoretical work of Sir George Cayley, the inventions of other pioneers of the nineteenth century and the daring exploits of the next generation of airmen, among them Samuel Cody, A.V. Roe, Bertram Dickson, Charles Rolls and Tommy Sopwith. His narrative is illustrated with a wonderful selection of over 120 archive drawings and photographs which record the men and the primitive flying machines of a century ago.??As featured on BBC Radio Surrey and in Essence Magazine.

À la recherche d'Antoine de Saint Exupéry L'oeuvre d'Antoine de Saint Exupéry, délaissée par l'Université, méprisée par les élites, hâtivement jugée moraliste et réactionnaire, ramenée au seul enchantement d'un conte, Le Petit Prince, méritait une relecture. L'homme a été le plus souvent célébré du fait de son engagement et de sa mort tragique. Déplacé de la sphère littéraire dans celle de l'héroïsme militaire, Saint Exupéry a été privé de sa dimension de grand écrivain, contrairement à Gide, Camus ou Sartre. Un héros donc, seulement un héros, serait-on tenté de dire, tant l'oeuvre littéraire, ses audaces, ses intuitions, ses prophéties ont été négligées et même rejetées. Pour rendre à Saint Exupéry la place qu'il mérite dans la littérature moderne, son biographe, Alain Vircondelet a fait appel aux contributions d'historiens, d'écrivains, d'universitaires, de psychanalystes, de spécialistes d'aviation ou simplement de passionnés, qui abordent des sujets tels que : la mort dans Le Petit Prince, le rapport à sa mère, Saint Exupéry et le cinéma, Saint Exupéry journaliste, son rapport à Dieu, ses derniers écrits, sa dépression, ses textes visionnaires, sa discorde avec de Gaulle...

Every day modern medicine announces the arrival of yet another “wonder drug” or “miracle procedure” to a world increasingly wary of expensive high-tech cures. Drugs, transplants, and surgery don’t work for 90 percent of our aches and pains and, while we are grateful for life-saving developments, we know that most come with risks that we ignore at our peril. Long hailed as one of the founding fathers of mind-body medicine, Larry Dossey directs our attention to simple sources of healing that have been available for centuries—treasures often hidden in plain sight—from the power of optimism and of tears to speed recovery to the surprising usefulness of dirt and bugs in curing disease and infection to the benefits of doing nothing. Exploring the medical research that validates these simple remedies, Dossey encourages us to align ourselves with the wisdom of nature and allow true healing to take place. The Extraordinary Healing Power of Ordinary Things can transform our view of what health is all about, whether our concern is cancer or the common cold. From the Hardcover edition.
