It's 1927, and the air race is on! Three pilots compete to be the first to fly across the Atlantic. In the spring of that year, three airplanes were at Roosevelt Field on Long Island preparing for a historic journey-a nonstop flight between New York and Paris. Which plane would be first? Most predicted that the Columbia, with renowned test pilot Clarence Chamberlin at the controls, would lead the way. Another plane, the America, was also a favorite. Its crew of four was headed by an authentic American hero, Richard E. Byrd, the famed Arctic explorer. Little was known about the third plane, the Spirit of St. Louis, piloted by a young flier named Charles Lindbergh. Fame and immortality awaited the winner. Based on primary sources, Three Across chronicles the daring feats of these courageous adventurers and the aftermath of their flights. Includes source notes, author's note, bibliography, and index.
