Item description for Orville Wright: The Flyer (Heroes of History) by Janet Benge & Benge Geoff...

At last Orville was free, soaring above the sand dunes, wind in his face. Lying in the glider's wing, he moved his hips in the control cradle and the craft began to turn as planned. But then something went wrong. The glider wanted to go into a spin, and as Orville struggled with the controls, it came to a standstill in midair. When Orville Wright (1871-1948) and his brother Wilbur set out to solve the problem of flight, they recognized that success would come with careful observation, perseverance, and ingenuity. From experiments in their Dayton, Ohio, bicycle shop to test flights over the beaches of Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, the amateur aviation enthusiasts risked their lives and worked tirelessly to solve the problems that had stumped the world's best scientists. Together the Wright brothers designed and constructed a power-driven airplane and, in it, made the world's first controlled, sustained flights. As a result, the skies were opened and the era of aviation began. Heroes of History is a unique biography series that brings the shaping of history to life with the remarkable true stories of fascinating men and women who changed the course of history. The stories of Heroes of History are told in an engaging narrative format, where related history, geography, government, and science topics come to life and make a lasting impression. This is a premier biography line for the entire family.

Reviews - What do customers think about Orville Wright: The Flyer (Heroes of History)?

excellent book  Sep 11, 2008
The Heroes of History series is a big hit with my child. The books are well written, and really hold the interest of the reader.

They are great for a child who loved history and who is looking to learn more about their favorite heroes, and they also engage a reluctant historian in such a way that history comes to life, and learning is fun.

I highly recommend these books. My child loves them, and they have provided him with a unique, enriching perspective on a variety of historical figures.
