On a winter day in 1903, on the remote Outer Banks of North Carolina, two brothers changed history. But it would take the world some time to believe that The age of flight had begun, with the first heavier-than-air powered machine carrying a pilot.Far more than a couple of Dayton bicycle mechanics who happened to hit on success, Wilbur and Orville Wright were men of exceptional ability, unyielding determination, and far-ranging intellectual interest and curiosity. Two-time Pulitzer Prize winner David McCullough tells the dramatic story of how these courageous brothers taught the world how to fly - and how their devoted sister, Katherine, played a far more important role than has been generally understood.
