The Wright Brothers by David McCullough
Wilbur Wright once said: “If I were giving a young man advice as to how he might succeed in life, I would say to him, pick out a good father and mother, and begin life in Ohio.” So begins best-selling historian David McCullough's biography of the Wright Brothers. This book describes life growing up in the unique family, and the brothers’ eventual use of the scientific method to create the world’s first airplane.
