By Dianna Dilworth Comment

Pulitzer Prize winning author David McCullough has a new book out this week in which he tells the dramatic story of Wilbur and Orville Wright.

“The Wright Brothers” lands on book store shelves tomorrow and is already the No. 7 book on Amazon’s Top 100 Books list, and is No. 1 in various categories including History and Engineering & Transportation. Here is more about the book from Simon & Schuster:
