Reviews

"Nearly 70 technical and popular articles, speeches, interviews, letters, and other writing by the brothers span from their experiments with gliders at the beginning of the 20th-century to Orville's death in 1948. . . . Jakab, a curator of early aviation at the National Air and Space Museum, and Young, with the Wright Experience organization . . . annotate the material thoroughly."--Book News
