Describes the Wright brothers of Dayton, Ohio and the events that lead to the world's first successful flight of a man-carrying, power-driven, heavier-than-air machine. The Wright brothers' first flight occurred on Dec. 17, 1903 and lasted just 12 seconds at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina.
In another dimension, three souls-Selene, Apollo, and Artemis-are called upon to take their roles as Destinies. Without any details, they're torn away from the only place they've ever known, and born into new bodies in a new world, Earth. When they arrive, they have only three things in mind. The prophecy, the truth, and the Destined-three wolf pups by the names of Eclipse, Rain, and Talon. More than just their own lives are on the line, as they try to uncover their own destinies. Thus a journey to reveal the truth in a world where nothing is what it seems begins, and the fates of many lie in the hands of the Destinies and their Destined.

The author, Alison Wylie, has been having out-of-body experiences for many years and has become an expert soul traveller. She is often asked about the techniques she uses, and this book is an answer to those questions. The ease with which Alison leaves her body at night while sleeping depends on her mindset; her beliefs, opinions, how she views her capabilities and how she looks at life and the world. âFirst Flightâ is the first in a series of books called âOn the Wings of the Soulâ. It is a presentation of a total mind view that leads to astral travel. A simple approach, because flying beyond our physical horizon is not complicated, it is all about finding our inner button and beginning to use skills which have lain dormant for too long. The book is designed to be carried with you, to read and re-read. Just make the ideas a part of your life, as the author did, and see where your journey takes you.
