Newfoundland and Labrador played a pivotal role in the history of aviation from 1919 until the end of the Cold War. From Charles Lindbergh and Amelia Earhart, to the first passenger planes and the Second World War, The Big Hop tells the stories of those who risked their lives to fly across the Atlantic Ocean. Richly illustrated. Large format. Large print.

Gavin Will is a historian, journalist and publisher who lives in Newfoundland and Labrador. He is fascinated by the seemingly innate drive of humans to investigate the unknown and to invent tools aimed at imitating the natural world.
