Chasing Horizons is a historical novel based on a six country competition to aeronautically circumnavigate the earth that took six months to complete and was followed by every newspaper in the world. It is a historically accurate story that the author was inspired to write when asked by his ten-year old daughter how her great great uncle could be the central character of perhaps the greatest adventure of all time, yet no one knows his name. Chasing Horizons is a father’s attempt to honor his daughter’s great-great uncle, and to remind the world of one of the most incredible races in human history that was the 20th Century’s largest peacetime logistical endeavor requiring the worldwide coordinated support effort of over 250,000 people.
