This book is the first deconstruction of the Wright brothers myth. They were not — as we have all come to believe—two halves of the same apple. Each had a distinctive role in creating the first «flying machine.»How could two misanthropic brothers who never left home, were high-school dropouts, and made a living as bicycle mechanics have figured out the secret of manned flight? This new history of the Wright brothers’ monumental accomplishment focuses on their early years of trial and error at Kitty Hawk (1900-1903) and Orville Wright’s epic fight with the Smithsonian Institute and Glenn Curtis.
