Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 4-7-Clearly written, thoughtful, and detailed, this biography is rich with well-researched Wright lore, much of which will be familiar to many readers. Yet McPherson carefully tells a full and complete story, managing to include some tidbits that other biographers for children may have put aside. She concludes with a nod to astronaut Neil Armstrong, who carried a piece of the Wright 1903 Flyer to the moon in 1969. The text itself is printed in an easy-to-read size and typeface interspersed with a lot of illustrative material. Some of the photos from the Wrights' early collection show damage from a 1913 flood-the spattered images add an air of authenticity and a reminder that the inventive spirit is not always perfect; and, as the text reveals, these inventors took their own pictures and developed their own film. There's one inconsistency: a suggestion that Wilbur was nervous about an upcoming speaking engagement because "he didn't like to dress up." Wilbur was the more shy of the pair but an assertion four pages earlier reads: "Always proper, Wilbur wore his usual suit coat, starched collar, and tie as he lay down in the center of the lower wing." Both brothers were always nattily dressed, a much talked-about trait at the time-no mechanic's overalls or flight suits for them. This well-researched and documented (very complete end and source notes) biography has it all in 100-plus pages.-Harriett Fargnoli, Great Neck Library, NY Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
