I thoroughly enjoyed “Discovery and Renewal on the Huffman Prairie: Where Aviation Took Wing.” This is a delightful, readable, and colorfully illustrated book in which David Nolin masterfully integrates Southwest Ohio geology, ecology, history, and culture to tell the story of how Huffman Prairie State Natural Landmark came into s: 3.

Huffman Prairie, also known as Huffman Prairie Flying Field or Huffman Field is part of Ohio's Dayton Aviation Heritage National Historical acre (hectare) patch of rough pasture, near Fairborn, northeast of Dayton, is the place where the Wright brothers (Wilbur and Orville) undertook the difficult and sometimes dangerous task of creating a dependable, fully controllable airplane.

Key words: "tucked away". Given its importance in American History, I was surprised by just how difficult it was to locate Huffman Prairie. I imagine several more flight/history enthusiast have been trying to track this spot down lately given the popularity of "The Wright Brothers" book that was released last on: Gate 16 A Wpafb Dayton, OH Winner of Indie Book Award, Regional Non-Fiction category.

Huffman Prairie was one of many large grasslands in the valley of the Mad River of southwestern Ohio when the area was settled in the s. These untamed fields of tall grasses and wildflowers were a product of the region’s geology, climate, and ecology.

While kids and their families tour the grounds, they also take time to answer questions in the park's Jr. Ranger activity book. Upon completion, Jr. Ranger cadets will receive a badge and certificate. The book is jammed with maps, photos, and a wealth of information about Huffman Prairie and prairies in general.

The book is beautifully done and in this interview you'll get a good sense of the passion the author feels for that particular restoration project and others in the Miami Valley. We had a hard time trying to find it until we stopped following our GPS. It's also good to know that the Interpretive Center with the Wright brothers monument and Huffman Prairie Flying Field are 2 different places, about 3 miles apart, on the opposite sides of highway / TripAdvisor reviews.
