            A GUARDIAN BEST BOOK OF THE YEAR A NEW STATESMAN BEST BOOK OF THE YEAR A DAILY TELEGRAPH BEST BOOK OF THE YEAR A NEW REPUBLIC BEST BOOK OF THE YEAR A TIME MAGAZINE TOP 10 NONFICTION BOOK OF 2013 From ambitious scientists rising above the clouds to test the air, to brave generals ...floating over enemy lines to watch troop movements, this wonderful book offers a seamless fusion of history, art, science, biography and the metaphysics of flight. It is a masterly portrait of human endeavour, recklessness, vision and hope. In this heart-lifting book, Richard Holmes, author of the best-selling The Age of Wonder, follows the daring and enigmatic men and women who risked their lives to take to the air (or fall into the sky). Why they did it, what their contemporaries thought of them, and how their flights revealed the secrets of our planet is a compelling adventure that only Holmes could tell. It is not a conventional history of ballooning. In a sense it is not really about balloons at all. It is about what balloons gave rise to. It is about the spirit of discovery itself and the extraordinary human drama it produces. From the dramatic and exhilarating early Anglo-French balloon rivalries, the crazy firework flights of the beautiful Sophie Blanchard, the long-distance voyages of the American entrepreneur John Wise and French photographer Felix Nadar to the balloons used to observe the horrors of modern battle during the Civil War (including a flight taken by George Armstrong Custer); the legendary tale of at least sixty-seven manned balloons that escaped from Paris (the first successful civilian airlift in history) during the Prussian siege of 1870-71; the high-altitude exploits of James Glaisher who rose seven miles above the earth without oxygen, helping to establish the new science of meteorology; and how Mary Shelley, Edgar Allan Poe, and Jules Verne felt the imaginative impact of flight and allowed it to soar in their work. Previously published as Falling Upwards.

            The Flying Doctor

            From the author of Healthy Bastards, the man known as the 'Flying Doctor' is back, this time with his misadventures, escapades and high jinks from a life of medicine, aviation and hunting. For the first time, Dave Baldwin, known throughout the backcountry as The Flying Doctor..., shares his tales from life lived at full-throttle. From his early years struggling with dyslexia to graduating from med school, from learning to fly and joining the New Zealand Air Force to becoming a cardiologist at Palmerston North Hospital and setting up a general practice in Bulls, Dave's early life was certainly a life less ordinary. Later on he started the 'Not So Royal Flying Doctor Service', a service for the rural aviation community based at remote airstrips and farms in the backcountry, which has paved the way for a life combining his two passions: high-country flying and hunting. 'Till the day I die I will never forget the thrill of my first sight of a mighty stag alone in the mountains.' - Dr Dave. Well-known for his eccentric personality, playful antics and colourful turn of phrase, Dave's story is highly entertaining and truly unique. Yet it's not without tragedy, having lost his best mate and son Marc in a terrible incident in the same place they'd shared so many cherished father-son moments. Dave is also the founder of the Healthy Bastards Bush Pilot Champs, a precision landing, short take-off and landing competition held annually at Omaka Airfield in Blenheim
