“Grove’s book is both an inspiration and a template for those who want to kick history out of the attic and put it back where it belongs: in the national living room, slightly to the left of the television.” [A Grizzly in the Mail]
—Washington Post

“Besides the detailed narrative that reads more like an action thriller than a historical account, the book is filled with fascinating archival images from the remarkable feat and maps tracking the adventure. Young readers, as well as adults, will find this history of a little-known moment of global proportions to be an exceptional read.”
Parents’ Choice Awards [First Flight Around the World is a gold medal book]

“Drawing on archival materials, Grove enlivens this story of historical achievement with humor and fascinating travel anecdotes, while portraying the perseverance and dedication of the crew. This suspenseful tale is a visual feast with heart.”
First Flight Around the World is a finalist for the YALSA Excellence in Nonfiction Award

about Tim…

I’m a public historian and hands-on learner who pursues the past with passion and believes that to understand history is to understand ourselves. I write and speak about people, places, and events that fascinate me and that provide a window into who we are as a nation. I invite you to join me on my adventures, hoping my enthusiasm for the past is contagious.

about history…

“History does not refer merely, or even principally, to the past. On the contrary, the great force of history comes from the fact that we carry it within us, are unconsciously controlled by it in many ways, and history is literally present in all that we do.”
—James Baldwin

“History, by apprising [the people] of the past, will enable them to judge of the future.”
—Thomas Jefferson
