One Summer: America, 1927 free pdf A "Chicago Tribune" Noteworthy BookA GoodReads Reader's Choice The summer of 1927 began with Charles Lindbergh crossing the Atlantic. Meanwhile, Babe Ruth was closing in on the home run record. In Newark, New Jersey, Alvin Shipwreck Kelly sat atop a flagpole for twelve days, and in Chicago, the gangster Al Capone was tightening his grip on bootlegging. The first true talking picture, Al Jolson s "The Jazz Singer," was filmed, forever changing the motion picture industry. All this and much, much more transpired in the year Americans attempted and accomplished outsized things and when the twentieth century truly became the American century. "One Summer" transforms it all into narrative nonfiction of the highest order."
