    Richard E. Byrd
"Skyward" is the story of the pilot and explorer who gave rise to American aviation. In this memoir, originally published in 1928, Admiral Richard E. Byrd dramatically re-creates the youthful and dangerous years of American flight...."Skyward" vividly details the hazards of reaching the North Pole by air, the adventures of the first transatlantic flights, as well as Byrd's fight to persuade Congress and the U.S. Navy to continue their involvement in the new venture called aviation. Absorbingly chronicled also is the planning of Byrd's initial exploration and flight into Antarctica and over the South Pole. (Photographs)
