Orville and Wilbur Wright were a fascinating pair. This well-researched and personable biography is illustrated with elegant watercolors by flight enthusiast and noted artist Robert Andrew Parker, and will be published just in time for the 100th anniversary of the Wright brothers' 1st flight. Not only did they invent, build, and fly the first airplane, they were also idiosyncratic folks who had a distinctive relationship, sharing a home, a bank account, plus a business all through their lives. Their story is portrayed here in brief, accessible chapters, beginning with their childhood fascination with flight and adore of problem solving, then detailing their early experiments and unsafe trial runs in North Carolina, and ending with their productive flights of 1903. Timeline, endnotes, bibliography.
