Über diesen Titel

Críticas:

"[McCullough] takes the Wrights' story aloft. . . . Concise, exciting, and fact-packed. . . . Mr. McCullough presents all this with dignified panache, and with detail so granular you may wonder how it was all collected."--Janet Maslin "The New York Times "

"David McCullough has etched a brisk, admiring portrait of the modest, hardworking Ohioans who designed an airplane in their bicycle shop and solved the mystery of flight on the sands of Kitty Hawk, N.C. He captures the marvel of what the Wrights accomplished and, just as important, the wonder felt by their contemporaries. . . . Mr. McCullough is in his element writing about seemingly ordinary folk steeped in the cardinal American virtues--self-reliance and can-do resourcefulness."--Roger Lowenstein "The Wall Street Journal "

"Few historians have captured the essence of America -- its rise from an agrarian nation to the world's dominant power -- like David McCullough. . . . McCullough has defined American icons and revealed new dimensions to stories that long seemed exhausted. . . . An elegant, sweeping look at the two Americans who went where no others had gone before and whose work helped create a national excellence in aviation that continues today."--Ray Locker "USA Today "

"Pleasurable to read. . . . McCullough has a gift for finding the best in his subjects without losing perspective on their flaws."--Margaret Quamme "The Columbus Dispatch "

"McCullough's magical account of [the Wright Brothers'] early adventures -- enhanced by volumes of family correspondence, written records, and his own deep understanding of the country and the era -- shows as never before how two Ohio boys from a remarkable family taught the world to fly."--Reeve Lindbergh "The Washington Post "

"McCullough vividly re-creates the failures and disappointments as the Wright brothers puzzle out the scienceof bird- and insect-wing design. . . . [McCullough] continues to deliverhigh-quality material with familiar facility and grace."--Larry Lebowitz "The Miami Herald "

"A master storyteller. . . . The brothers' story unfolds and develops with grace and insight in a style at which McCullough is simply the best."--David Henricks "The San Antonio Express-News "

"The nitty-gritty of exactly how [the Wrights] succeeded is told in fascinating detail."--Buzzy Jackson "The Boston Globe "

"A story of timeless importance, told with uncommon empathy and fluency. . . . A story, well told, about what might be the most astonishing feat mankind has ever accomplished. . . . The Wright Brothers soars."--Daniel Okrent "The New York Times Book Review "

"We all know what they did and where they did it -- Kitty Hawk, on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. But McCullough digs deeply to find out how they did it, and why they did it, and what happened to them in the years that followed."--Harry Levins "The St. Louis Post-Dispatch "
