SUMMARY

Praise for The BIG JUMP "Richard Bak has an astonishing gift for making events of the distant past seem as if they happened just yesterday. Now he has put that gift to use in a superb rediscovery of aviation's greatest adventure story: the deadly race to connect New York and Paris by air."-James Tobin, author of To Conquer the Air: The Wright Brothers and the Great Race for Flight "The Big Jump tells the epic story of the boyish aviator who captured the world's imagination with his solo flight to Paris after several others had perished in the attempt. Richard Bak's crisp narrative captures all of the drama, suspense, courage, and thrills of the most wondrous feat of the Roaring Twenties. A terrific read."-Bill Sloan, author of Given Up for Dead and Brotherhood of Heroes The race to make the first nonstop flight between New York and Paris attracted some of the most famous and seasoned aviators of the day, yet it was the young and virtually unknown Charles Lindbergh who won the $25,000 Orteig Prize for his history-making solo flight in the Spirit of St. Louis. Drawing on many previously overlooked sources, The Big Jump offers a fresh look at the personalities that made up this epic air race-a deadly competition that culminated in one of the twentieth century's most thrilling personal achievements and turned Charles Lindbergh into the first international hero of the modern age.Bak, Richard is the author of 'Big Jump : Lindbergh and the Great Atlantic Air Race', published 2011 under ISBN 9780471477525 and ISBN 0471477524.
