The Wright Brothers

David McCullough, one of America's premier history authors,  has come up with another gem, the story of the famous but not well known Wright brothers.   A fascinating tale of family, ingenuity, competition, and even international intrigue.  I enjoyed it a lot....

Hope your shoulder heals fast from the surgery. Good time to relax and read. I hope Lily and Mrs TB are doing okay! Keep smiling:)

I'll keep it in mind. I've read The Great Bridge and The Path Between the Seas and enjoyed both books.

It never fail when I see a huge jet liner that looks like it is just hanging in air to briefly think--'how on earth is that even possible.' The brothers saw it was and this should be a good read.

Will keep an eye out for it on Overdrive. Sounds like it would make perfect listening while processing the bumper crop of wild apples.

Yes, a great story!! I have read a few other books about the Wright Brothers and all have been so good. My boys read a Young Reader's book about them and loved it too.

Now that is a book that would interest me. I must look out for it.

Hope your shoulder is healing well.

This is my second attempt to leave a comment. The first was hindered by the captcha and a set of pictures asking me select all the pancakes - which I couldn't shift. Hmmm......
