Passarola Rising PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Passarola Rising free pdf In 1731, leaving their home and the Age of Reason behind them, two brothers set sail from a castle in Portugal and travel ...up. Bartolomeu has built the world's first airship, on scientific principles. Borne aloft by the properties of vacuum-spheres, the marvellous Passarola takes him and his younger, more romantic brother Alexandre on their quest for truth, encountering some of the most remarkable men and events of this remarkable age: from listening to Voltaire on the outskirts of Ancien Regime Paris, to rescuing the Polish King from a sea battle with the Russians, to testing their capacities at the furthest extremes of the North Pole and the edge of the atmosphere. Alive with the truth of history and the imagination, Passarola Rising is an irresistible flight of fancy with this brilliant new Australian novelist.
