ENDURING COURAGE Ace Pilot Eddie Rickenbacker and the Dawn of the Age of Speed

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Edward Herrmann

Biography & Memoir • 13.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2014

An outstanding audio production enhances an outstanding text. Early race car driver and WWI flying ace Eddie Rickenbacker was a genuine American hero, a rough, uneducated youth whose legendary grit, mechanical ingenuity, and fighting spirit exemplified “the right stuff” before it had its name. His is an action story, one of history’s best, and biographer Ross delivers it with all its thrills and danger, and no glorification. As narrator, Edward Herrmann is, as always, matchless. His sustaining voice maintains the tension of the action, while giving weight and purpose to the rich technical and historical background Ross fills in along the way. This is a biography many people will enjoy, sure to be one of the most popular and honored titles of the year. D.A.W.
