Author(s): Russ Banham
Over the course of a century, the Boeing Company has grown from a small outfit operating out of a converted boathouseâproducing a single pontoon plane made from canvas and woodâinto the world's largest aerospace company. The thrilling story of the celebrated organization is one filled with ambition, ingenuity and a passion to exceed expectations. In this lavishly illustrated book, published to coincide with Boeing's 100th anniversary, Pulitzer Prizeânominated author Russ Banham recounts the tale of a company and an industry like no otherâone that has put men on the moon, defended the free world and changed the way we live.
Russ Banham is a Pulizer Prize-nominated journalist and the author of twenty-three books, including The Ford Century, Coors: A Rocky Mountain Legend, Wanderlust, and The Fight for Fairfax.
