"Former musician Daniel Hecht has brought a welcome artistry to his new field . . . He is a writer for those who demand texture, intriguing information, and a provocative thesis along with their thrills." - Publishers Weekly (starred review)
Kites!: Remebering the proportions of the kites I built when I was 12, I built a large kite from scrap materials while in Maine. The kite was six feet tall and had the lift needed to carry a video camera aloft. It reached astonishing heights and gave us not only an orbital view of Lane's Island but a surprising face-to-face view of the Green Man, the omnipresent god of forests and the world's green places. You can see flight video and photos from the ground at www.danielhechtblog.com.
