Hard cover, 152 pages
Dimensions: 5.6 x 8.4 x 0.75 inches (141 x 214 x 19 mm), Copyright: 1974

Front Cover Note: "Soaring - the marvelously fun-filled and dramatic story of a man who took up gliding at forty-eight and lived to become a champion …of sorts"

The front and back cover notes give a good overview of the book and the author.  It is a great book.  I particularly like how he documents the process of his learning to fly gliders.  I also like the part where his mother sees him fly a glider for the first time.  He also documents his first soaring contest efforts and the first time he won a day at a contest.
