Publisher Comments:

This new biography of Orville and Wilbur Wright uses the brothers' own journals and drawings to tell the exciting story of the first time a person flew in a heavier-than-air machine.

"Success four flights Thursday..."

On December 17, 1903, Orville and Wilbur Wright sent a telegram to their father. Its simple message told of the brothers' historic flights at Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina. For the very first time, a person flew in a heavier-than-air machine. In the years that followed, the Wright brothers' fame grew as they shared their new invention with the world.

Readers will discover the Wright brothers' lives by reading and seeing Orville and Wilbur's own letters, notebooks, and diaries. Kids will hear the brothers' story as if they were really there!

Synopsis:

Born a slave in New York, Sojourner Truth went to extraordinary lengths to get her son back after he was sold away from her. Through hard work and the help of her friends, Sojourner freed herself and her children from slavery. As a free woman, she traveled across the country speaking against slavery and in favor of women's rights. Photos.
