Wright Brothers by Elizabeth MacLeod
Book DescriptionAs young men, Orville and Wilbur Wright had a dream. They believed that one day people would fly, and they were determined to be the first. Despite setbacks that would have discouraged many inventors, the Wright brothers' dream came true. From a windy sand dune near Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, they made a short 36-meter flight --- and flew into aviation history. This biography in the Snapshots: Images of People and Places in History series uses photographs, newspaper clippings, maps, quotes and drawings to explore the Wright brothers' struggles. Also included are timelines of their lives and the history of flight, and a listing of pertinent Web sites.
