Follow the fearless highs and dangerous lows of the Wright brothers in their quest to take to the skies in this courageous – and true – story of the pioneers of flight. The Wright brothers dared to dream of being the first men in the world to fly… but would they ever see their dreams take flight?  The golden age of aviation is brought vividly to life in this story of determination, ingenuity, and courage from Adam Hancher.
