Falling Upwards: How We Took To The Air

Hay Festival 2013, 

The Romantic biographer floats across the world following the pioneer generation of balloon aeronauts, from the first heroic experiments of the Montgolfiers in the 1780s to the tragic attempt to fly a balloon to the North Pole in the 1890s.
