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.
