Synopsis

The Wright boys' interest in flying began with a toy given to them when they were small children. As young men, they first opened a printing shop and then a bicycle shop, all the while experimenting with how to design a flying machine. Finally they achieved their incredible goal-man's first powered flight. In this accessible picture book with a "House that Jack Built" approach, young readers are gradually introduced to all the steps that led up to the Wright brother's remarkable historic accomplishment.
