The Fabulous Flying Machines of Alberto Santo-Dumont

Victoria Griffith

More Information

Description:

A successful journalist, Victoria Griffith makes her first foray into children’s fiction with the story of Alberto Santos-Dumont, the larger-than- life Brazilian who many argue flew before the Wright brothers. It was 1906 in Paris when Alberto, challenged by a fellow inventor, turned his dirigible into a flying machine and cemented his place in the history of flight. “… the story’s suspense (rival pilots! harrowing landings!) and surprise cameos (Louis Cartier!) make this an elegant tribute to a hero of early aviation.”—Publishers Weekly
