Send to Kindle
Print This

The summer of 1927 is the subject of a new book by Bill Bryson with the title “One Summer.”

He’s crammed a lot of stories in 450 pages: Lindbergh’s flight, the Yankees with Ruth and Gehrig, the great Mississippi floods, Ford

Motor’s decline, the Tunney-Dempsey fight, Sacco and Vanzetti’s convictions, the KKK’s prominence, the origins of television, the end

of silent movies, silent Cal Coolidge’s administration, the run-up to the great Wall Street crash, the many airplane crashes and

disappearances.
