Description
Information
In the essays collected here William Langewiesche considers how flying has altered not only how we move about the earth, but also how we view our world and our place in it. With vivid descriptions of the aesthetics and excitement of flight, Langewiesche also writes of the risks that go with this beauty: the perils of air traffic control, and the dangers of nervous passengers and bad weather.

Full of spare and elegant prose, Aloft is a fascinating journey into the new, profound dimension that flight has added to the human experience.
