Tom D. Crouch (au); John Glenn (fw). In the century since its invention by Wilbur & Orville Wright, the airplane has profoundly changed the world & become an emblem of our time. Here, noted Wright biographer Tom D. Crouch underscores the importance of the Wrights’ family, their distinct personalities, & the roles of North Carolina’s Outer Banks & Dayton, Ohio, as laboratories of flight. Illustrated features tracing the Wrights’ progress, maps, & a fold-out chart depicting the 1903 Wright Flyer & the principles of flight make this an indispensable guide to the Wright brothers’ story. A foreword by astronaut John Glenn deepens our sense of their place in the history of flight. Color photos.
