Determination. David McCullough is a historian who really knows how to tell a story. We all know one part of the story: Wilbur and Orville Wright built and flew the first motor-powered airplane. What it took for that happen, how they did it, what came before and what came after the Kitty Hawk flight, provide for hours of engaging reading in McCullough’s book titled, The Wright Brothers. The determination and self-reliance of these brothers captures the spirit of the United States especially during that era of radical invention and progress in the early twentieth century. McCullough selects just the right details to present, but never overwhelms his audience. Readers who like history will love this book.
