Summary
At the turn of the 20th century the invention of the car and the airplane took our imaginations by storm and produced new American heroes: the race car driver and the flying ace. No one did more in these roles than Eddie Rickenbacker, who defied death with such courage and pluck that a generation knew his face better than the president's. This is the unforgettable story of a man who pushed the limits of speed, endurance and courage and emerged as an American legend
