RACE TO HAWAII The 1927 Dole Derby and the Thrilling First Flights That Opened the Pacific

by | Read by Keith Sellon-Wright

History • 12 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

This audiobook has all the breathless excitement of a sporting event. With professional concision and eloquence, narrator Keith Sellon-Wright delivers this fast-paced audiobook with just the right cadence and style. It is first and foremost a tribute to the intrepid airmen who made the initial trans-Pacific flights from California to Hawaii. This story is packed with flight details of the heroic efforts (some doomed) to cross the immense ocean using primitive technology. It also provides a good backdrop on the Roaring Twenties, when daring young men took to the skies in their fragile flying machines. Narrator Sellon-Wright does a fine job capturing their exploits in this fascinating aeronautical and cultural history of a bygone time.
