Overview

Jimmie Angel was a noted American aviator who discovered Angel Falls in Venezuela—the tallest waterfall in the world. Yet after twenty years of searching for more about the man, the author finds that there are many aspects of his legendary life that are still unknown. Jimmie Angel was a man who was controversial during his life and remains to be so to this day. Angel’s Flight is a marker on the path to resolving the mysteries of Jimmie Angel’s life, and author Karen Angel, Jimmie’s niece, gathers together the verifiable history of the life of Jimmie Angel and his pursuit of the lost River of Gold and his discovery in 1933 of the tallest waterfall on planet Earth. But did he learn to fly when he was only fourteen years old? Did he work as an aviation scout for Lawrence of Arabia during the Arab Revolt (1916–18), create an air force for a Chinese warlord in the Gobi Desert, or work as a test pilot for Italian airplane designer Giovanni Battista Caproni?
