Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by David McCullough

Biography & Memoir • 10 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2015

David McCullough’s reading of his new biography of the Wright Brothers is a stellar production on every count, and a supremely satisfying listening experience. McCullough’s calm, avuncular voice, familiar to millions from his PBS productions, is for many of us the voice of history itself. In the Wrights he sees exemplified the values of courage, character, and perseverance, which he has honored in book after book, never with such unqualified admiration as here. McCullough concentrates on the first decade of the 1900s— the Wrights’ years of labor and invention and a period of unparalleled public excitement their first flights inspired in Europe and America. The text is concise, rich in telling and illuminating detail. You feel you’re not just listening, but seeing the story unfold before your eyes. D.A.W.
