📒Race To The Sky ✍ Stephen B. Goddard
📝Race to the Sky Book Synopsis : Everyone knows that the Wright brothers were the first to fly, but few know of their David and Goliath struggle with their own Federal Government. President McKinley's administration allotted unprecedented funds and attracted such talent as Alexander graham Bell and Samuel Pierpont Langley, possessed to ensure that the first flyers would be American. The Wright brothers refused government support, fearing strings attached, and resolved to go it alone. This book tracks the struggle between the Wright brothers and the Federal Government, and the raw ambition, high ideals, greed, and cloak and dagger tactics of each side. Years and years of effort came to a head in eight tense days in December of 1903 when the battle - and the fame and fortune that would follow - was decided.

📒To Conquer The Air ✍ James Tobin
📝To Conquer the Air Book Synopsis : James Tobin, award-winning author of Ernie Pyle's War and The Man He Became, has penned the definitive account of the inspiring and impassioned race between the Wright brothers and their primary rival Samuel Langley across ten years and two continents to conquer the air. For years, Wilbur Wright and his younger brother, Orville, experimented in obscurity, supported only by their exceptional family. Meanwhile, the world watched as Samuel Langley, armed with a contract from the US War Department and all the resources of the Smithsonian Institution, sought to create the first manned flying machine. But while Langley saw flight as a problem of power, the Wrights saw a problem of balance. Thus their machines took two very different paths—Langley’s toward oblivion, the Wrights’ toward the heavens—though not before facing countless other obstacles. With a historian’s accuracy and a novelist’s eye, Tobin has captured an extraordinary moment in history. To Conquer the Air is itself a heroic achievement.
