About David McCullough’s The Wright Brothers:
 
Two-time Pulitzer Prize winner David McCullough’s biography is a fresh, personal account of Wilbur and Orville Wright: two young men from the American Midwest who, armed with dedication, ingenuity, and the skills they acquired as bicycle mechanics, invented the first practical airplane in history.
 
Based on extensive research—including the brothers’ personal correspondence and diaries—The Wright Brothers brings these two iconic American heroes to life as never before. More than the chronicle of an invention, The Wright Brothers is the story of an American family whose belief in the values of hard work and perseverance made all things seem possible—even the conquest of the skies.
