Summary: Language: English Description: "The aim of this learner's guide is to expand on the information presented in the TV series and the video. To give a glimpse of the long and fascinating history of kites and their symbolic and practical significance in many cultures. To gain a deeper understanding of why kites fly, and provide detailed instructions for building the kites shown in the series. Although the series focuses on maneuverable kites, rather than those that just 'park' in the sky, the basic principles of construction and flight apply to all kites. The main idea is to access the fun of kite flying, through understanding how to build or buy a kite that will go up in the sky and stay up. You can't control the wind, but you can avoid the difficulty and frustration that may have marked previous experiences with kite flying. There's nothing like the sense of satisfaction in seeing a kite you have built yourself rise gracefully into the sky." 176 pages
