"The Great Transatlantic Race" is the story of two 1920s barnstorming pilots from Hicker's Ranch, Nebraska, who attempt to become the first aviators in history to fly across the Atlantic Ocean.
On August 10, 1925, two barnstorming pilots from Hicker's Ranch, Nebraska, arrived on Long Island to begin a very special project.
Their goal was to capture the Raymond Orteig Prize, $25,000 for making aviation history.
They found financial backing, a builder, and a dusty, mice-ridden hangar to call their headquarters.
The next step was not so simple.
It had to do with flying across the Atlantic.
R. J. Thomas' novel, "The Great Transatlantic Race," combines fact and fiction in this study of one of the most exciting races of the twentieth century.
