AUGUSTUS HERRING AND THE DAWN OF FLIGHT. BOOK ONE

 

Influenced by the Gilded Age idea that a young man could attain a
life of accomplishment and honor through hard work, determination,
and courage, Herring soon learned that Horatio Alger’s “rags to
riches” narrative paled in the face of unrelenting rejection. Alger had
also suggested that an older, kindly, and prosperous benefactor
might be useful in assisting a young man’s success. In 1893, at the
age of 26, Herring met that person: someone who eventually proved
to be his greatest antagonist.

AUGUSTUS HERRING AND THE DAWN OF FLIGHT. BOOK TWO

 

As the trial continues, witnesses for the plaintiff offer in-depth
accounts of the Curtiss swindle, present sordid details regarding
the Wright brothers, and describe events involving aviation’s master
manipulator… Octave Chanute.

Herring’s wealthy benefactor, Matthias Arnot, and Professor
Langley’s principal engineer, Charles Manley, add vigor to an
already impressive collection of aeronautical personalities who
appear throughout Book Two.

Acrimony in the courtroom takes a violent turn as hostility builds.
The stress ravages Herring's health and puts the legal proceedings at risk. Will a mistrial be declared? How will the judge rule?
