The Wright Brothers

by David McCullough

On a winter day in 1903, in the Outer Banks of North Carolina, two brothers - bicycle mechanics from Dayton, Ohio - changed history.  But it would take the world some time to believe that the age of flight had begun, with the first powered machine carrying a pilot.  

Orville and Wilbur Wright were men of exceptional courage and determination, and of far-ranging intellectual interests and ceaseless curiosity.  When they worked together, no problem seemed to be insurmountable.  Wilbur was unquestionably a genius.  Orville had such mechanical ingenuity as few had ever seen.  That they had no more than a public high school education and little money never stopped them in their mission to take to the air.  Nothing did, not even the self-evident reality that every time they took off, they risked being killed.

Books are available at both library branches.
