Wilbur and Orville: A Biography of the Wright Brothers
By Fred Howard

Definitive, crisply written study tells the full story of the brothers' lives and work. A vividly written biography, unparalleled in scope and color, which also captures the spirit of an extraordinary era.

Definitive, highly regarded study tells the full story of the brothers' lives and work-before, during and after the historic flight at Kitty Hawk: early experiments and glider flights on Indiana sand dunes, exhilarating days on North Carolina's Outer Banks where they perfected the first flyer, the bitter patent fight and legal battles that followed, Wilbur's untimely death, and much more. Sure to thrill anyone fascinated by the early days of flight, this crisply written account-which also contains references to such legendary aviation pioneers as Octave Chanute, Glenn Curtiss, and Samuel Langley-captures the spirit of an extraordinary era.
