Summary "Thousands of years before humans invented the airplane, they were imagining what the world looked like from above. All things aerial come to life as William L. Fox goes high and low over the earth in a quest to unravel this almost timeless fascination." "In the West, he sideswipes military airspace to view massive artworks in the deserts of Nevada, soars through the world's largest open pit mine in Utah, and surveys Los Angeles, circumnavigating large swaths of true American urban sprawl. On the East Coast, he examines the elevated art of the Hudson River Valley and New York City, and in an emotional journey revisits the flight path of one of the planes that decimated the World Trade Center. And finally Fox goes down under, exploring the practice and history of Aboriginal aerial views, venturing deep into Australia, the smallest, flattest, and perhaps the most captivating of the seven continents."--BOOK JACKET.
