The Wrights' longest flight in 1903 covered 852 feet and lasted 59 seconds. In 1905, Wilbur flew 24 miles in 38 minutes and the issue was no longer how to fly but how to cash in. Their effort to exploit their invention is a suspense story of the best kind; their voyage into flight and into American history is a gripping tale from takeoff to landing.

    " A very detailed account of the perseverence of these two entrepreuneurs. Includes a lot od direct quotes from diaries and observers and some good photos. I stopped after their success as the later half of the book is about trying to honor their patent - they got screwed - surprise? "
