When I look up and see a jet streaking across the sky, I'm amazed that such a big hunk of metal can actually get up in the air and fly. Men have been fascinated with the art of flight for millennia, trying to copy the birds of the air and what their Creator has made the winged creatures do so naturally. Early man-made attempts at flight were dismal failuresuntil the Wright brothers came along. Flight captured the imaginations of Wilber and Orville Wright from the time they were young. Their curiosity was aroused by the experiments of Otto Lilienthal, and these close brothers began a journey of learning and research. They began experimenting with gliders and failed miserably. So they experimented some more. They were eventually successful, but it was a long, hard road to get there. This is their story, wonderfully told by Russell Freedman and illustrated with contemporary photography (including many photos shot by the Wright brothers themselves). This large paperback would make a great addition to a unit study on flight or inventions, but children will enjoy reading this story just for fun, too. Don't be surprised if they become inspired to pursue and develop big ideas of their own! 129 pgs, pb. Chad

A "package" is made up of two or more items sold as a set, often for a reduced price. A listing of individual items that make up a package is provided on the package item's product detail page along with real-time item availability of those items. Any item sold as a package on our website is identified by a unique alpha-numeric item number (such as "APH1AB"). Although packages are sets, items are not physically bundled together.. Because most package items or components are also sold separately and may be components of multiple packages, these items may not have the same inventory availability at any point in time. When you order a package, you are charged one price for all package items. In-stock components will ship according to our normal shipping time. Any backordered components will ship separately as they become available. On your packing slip, package components are picked and packed individually and are identified with the code "PKGCMP" in the price column. The package item number is also listed at the bottom of your packing slip for reference. Please note that if your order ships in multiple boxes, package components may not all be in the same box. Package content is not flexible and cannot be modified.
Packages are returnable if all package items are returned, but individual items purchased as part of a package are returned, they may be refunded for less than the individual purchase price of that item, as they were purchased as part of a discounted package.
