Wings over the Arctic

William H. Elson, Christine M. Keck & Mary H. Burris.  Junior High School Literature, Book Two.  Revised Edition.  Chicago:  Scott, Foresman & Co., 1920, 1928.
The frontispiece of this high school text from the 20's.  I think it perfectly captures the romance of aviation as it extended into more remote parts of the globe.  Imagine being a teenager at the time, stuck in English class, dreaming of flying a biplane over the arctic seas!
