Reprinted from Marvels of the New West, 1882. This is the epic story of building the line across the Sierra Nevada of California, the deserts of Nevada, and the salt flats of Utah to meet the Union Pacific Railroad at Promontory Point on May 10, 1869. Rail fans and history buffs have access today to historic parks and museums at the ends of this line in Sacramento and Promontory Point and along the way at the Donner Lake State Park. There is also an article explaining train travel by passengers at this early date.

The Wright Brothers' Aeroplane: how they invented it...Temporarily out of print
by the Wright Brothers Orville and Wilbur Wright.
The Wrights began their aircraft inventing not as part of a scientific institution, but as a hobby following an initial boyhood curiosity in a flying toy. They tell not only of how they discovered the necessary principles, but of applying them to a machine, and then launching themselves into the air with it. Reprinted from Century Magazine, 1908.
Photographs show little planes in the air, kites and balloons as predecessors, and the Wright Brothers. 12 pages.
