Aided by over 100 rarely seen photographs from the Wright brothers' personal collection, the authors tell the story of Wilbur and Orville Wright: how they went from operating a printing shop and bicycle store in Dayton, Ohio, to ushering in the Age of Flight; why Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, was chosen as the site of their initial experiments; and how Orville made the crucial discovery that led to man's first powered, sustained, controlled airplane flight on December 17, 1903. While many books on the Wright brothers end with the historic first flight, "Kitty Hawk and Beyond" goes much further, documenting in eloquent words and rare photographs the important events, post-1903, that frame the Wright Brothers legend.
