Pressestimmen"A fascinating tale of American ingenuity, bravery, and determination." - American History; "A delight of Thomas C. Parramore's First to Fly is its movement from one good story to another, its lack of aeronautical jargon, and its dependence on character and tale to offer engaging history.... Parramore has discovered a buried North Carolina aviation legacy." - Clyde Edgerton, Raleigh News & Observer; "Parramore easily achieves his goal of convincing the reader that North Carolina and North Carolinians played a considerable role in the early history of flight." - Thomas D. Crouch, Senior Curator, National Air and Space Museum
