Here, from historian Sherwood Harris, is the vivid story of how two shy, conservative brothers from Dayton, Ohio, Orville and Wilbur Wright, became the first people in the world to achieve powered flight. On December 17, they made four flights - of 120, 175, 180, and 852 feet - and they took photographs to prove it, including perhaps the most dramatic aviation picture of all time, showing the first flight just an instant after it became airborne with Orville at the controls.

As Emily flies around Washington’s Olympic Mountains and along the Oregon Coast, she discovers that her future just might be on a clearer flight path than she thought possible. If she’s ready for it.

In 1924 the U.S. Army sent eight young men on a bold attempt to be the first to circumnavigate the globe by flight. Men from five other countries—Great Britain, France, Portugal, Italy, and Argentina—had the same goal. The race was on! First Flight Around the World documents the exciting journey of four American planes—the Chicago, Boston, New Orleans, and Seattle—and their crews on a race around the world. The trip held many challenges: extreme weather, tricky navigation, unfamiliar cultures, fragile planes, and few airfields. The world fliers risked their lives for the sake of national pride. Based in part on the journal of one of the crew members, First Lieutenant Leslie Arnold, along with commentary, newspaper reports, and archival images, First Flight Around the World is a captivating tale about American ingenuity, gumption, and perseverance.
