Audible Editor Reviews

Over a ringing score of John Philip Sousa marches and other up-tempo special effects, a range of gifted performers bring the Wright Brothers out of legend and into your speakers. This decidedly exultant audiobook is a story of flight, America, determination, and fraternal love. While this performance will not be considered deep history by many, listeners will nonetheless be excited to hear spoken selections of the brothers’ journals and of other illustrious characters of the day. A particular delight of listening to Wilbur and Orville Wright is in considering how much has happened in the span of 100 years.

Publisher's Summary

The strange name of Kitty Hawk is known to almost everyone. It was there that two brothers, Wilbur and Orville Wright, began a series of experiments, first with a glider and then with a powered heavier-than-air machine. Their experiments changed the world forever.

Working alone, ignored by the outside world, they worked on a series of machines that were truly revolutionary. In the history of aeronautics, they stand supreme. They began their flights at Kitty Hawk in 1900, but it was not until 1908 that they actually flew a machine in public. At first laughed at and disbelieved, they were eventually acknowledged by royalty and honoured by learned societies throughout the world.
