McCullough uses a vast array of sources to bring the Wright Brothers to life. Family and determination are key elements to the success of Orville and Wilbur. At the heart of who they were was the fact that they were bicycle mechanics with no formal engineering education, but would conquer flight like no other. Their first attempts to fly at Kitty Hawk show the vast stamina and determination they had. After reading the Kitty Hawk descriptions, you will be left in awe that they were ever able to take flight.
The Wright Brothers like other McCullough books transports the reader will be to an earlier time and to learn more than you ever thought possible. If you like the world of aviation or history, we enthusiastically recommend picking up this book. It is definitely worth a read!
