One Summer: America 1927

The best book I've read in 2016!

1927 was an amazing year: Lindberg's crossing the Atlantic nonstop in the Spirit of St. Louis, the develpment of early aviation in the world, Babe Ruth's home run record accomplished, flagpole sitting, talking movies, a flood disaster in the southern U.S., Al Capone and Chicago crime, and soooo much more.

This is fascinating history told as fiction, such as Erik Larson writes, with humor, detail, and gripping history. I read it on my Nook for many enjoyable hours. I strongly recommend reading about this part of our U.S. history.

Check our catalog for this great book.
