The Wright Brothers: Inventors of the Airplane

Beautifully designed for the young teen reader, this book includes many sidebars that bring to life the times in which the Wright Brothers lived. Readers will find out why the would-be inventors went to Kitty Hawk four Novembers in a row, how they used a bicycle to solve a wing-design problem, why Orville kept the original airplane away from the Smithsonian for four decades, and countless other facts that prove the genius of the brothers.
