The Bishops Boys: A Life of Wilbur and Orville Wright by Tom D. Crouch. First Published by W.W. Norton & Company Paperback 1990. ISBN: 0-393-30695-X. 606 Pages which Includes the Index.
Brilliant, self-trained engineers, the Wright brothers had a unique blend of native talent, character, and family experience that perfectly suited them to the task of invention but left them ill-prepared to face a world of skeptics, rivals, and officials. Using a treasure trove of Wright family correspondence and diaries, Tom Crouch skillfully weaves the story of the airplane's invention into the drama of a unique and unforgettable family. He shows us exactly how and why these two obscure bachelors from Dayton, Ohio, were able to succeed where so many better-trained, better-financed rivals had failed.
