    (If you don’t know which brother was which, join the crowd.) For McCullough, it’s not all propellers, wind tunnels and sand dunes: By emphasizing the Wright family dynamics, with a particular focus on their father, Bishop Milton Wright, and ever-supportive sister, Katharine Wright, he humanizes their story and makes it more relatable. In this thrilling book, master historian David McCullough draws on the immense riches of the Wright Papers, including private diaries, notebooks, scrapbooks, and more than a thousand letters from private family correspondence to tell the human side of the Wright Brothers’ story, including the little-known contributions of their sister.

      The book is a gem. Dreamers who refused to give up, who remained humble and loyal to their family and to their dream, the Wright Brothers were risk-takers who had total support from their two older brothers, their amazing sister Katharine, and their patient and proud dad. What a family! What a story! This is David McCullough at his very best.   Today, , marks years since the Wright Brothers first achieved powered, controlled flight at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. While many people are familiar with the general story of the Wright Brothers, few people understand how the invention of the airplane was in reality a family project — and two women in the Wright Family played a critical role to the success of the .

      Few stories rival the fascinating and exciting adventures of the Wright brothers both prior to and during their early days of flight. This illustrated reader contains a wonderful story that features that special relationship between the Wright brothers and their sister. 3rd . The Wright Brothers by David McCullough is a biography of the brothers who invented the first functioning flying machine. While the book touches on the personal life of the brothers and their family, the focus on the book is on the ten-year pursuit by the Wright Brothers of developing the airplane.
