Atlantic Fever free pdf For five weeks - from April 14 to May 21, 1927 - the world was rapt by the story of fourteen aviators, who took to the air to win the $25,000 that would be awarded to the first man to cross the Atlantic Ocean without stopping. In Atlantic Fever, Joe Jackson delves into the lives of the big-name competitors - the polar explorer Richard Byrd, the millionaire Charles Levine, and the enigmatic Charles Lindbergh, the race's eventual winner - as well as those whose names have been forgotten by history. Atlantic Fever is a spellbinding book that opens a new window into a moment when the nexus of technology, innovation, character, and spirit captured the imagination of the world.
