More than a century ago, two unknown brothers from Ohio gave mankind the ability to fly. In his new book, two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning author David McCullough traces the path of Orville and Wilbur Wright to that famed field near Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. McCullough joins us to talk about "The Wright Brothers," which draws extensively from the brothers' personal diaries, letters and notebooks.
