Interesting book, first chapter online...


This looks interesting...seems to encompass myth, flight and its meaning, and even the history of the UFO mystery airships. The entire first chapter is online; it's a good read.

In his book "Worlds Before Our Own," Brad Steiger suggests that the ancient Peruvians may have invented ballooning. In 1690, a Portuguese Jesuit priest recorded that he had actually seen the Peruvians flying about in hot-air balloons.

I also just saw one of those discovery or history channel shows--they actually made a balloon type thing to see if the nazsca lines could have been viewed that way. Although I think they were probably meant as a labyrinth, they showed that a balloon could have been made by the peruvian ancients.
