The Wright Brothers / David McCullough
In mid-December 1903, Orville and Wilbur Wright, brothers who ran a bicycle shop to fund their scientific pursuits, became the first people to launch a piloted aircraft and have it stay in the air for a significant period of time. That day forever changed air travel, and the Wright brothers became household names as the inventors of the first airplane and the fathers of aviation. In this book, Pulitzer Prize-winning author David McCullough describes the life and times of the Wright brothers, from their childhood in Dayton, Ohio, to their fascination with flight technology, and their determination to solve the issues that others had come up against when attempting to invent manned flight mechanisms. The author uses letters, journals, and family albums to piece together some of the most important parts of these brothers' lives
