Summary
Re-examining the history of aviation in America, Fogel, author of Wind and Wings: The history of Soaring in San Diego and Harwood (engineering geologist) detail the accomplishments of John J. Montgomery and his role as an aeronautical pioneer. This comprehensive biography exposes many of the fabrications surrounding Montgomery and the Wright Brothers and shifts the attention of aviation history from the East to the West, celebrating California's often over-looked achievements and contributions to air flight. Thoroughly researched and full of extensive documentation, this is an engaging read for aviation enthusiasts and historians. Annotation ©2012 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
