Fire in the Sky
A Tale of the Hindenburg ExplosionBook - 2009
In 1936, 15-year-old Michael Roth and his family are headed toward America. They're leaving Frankfurt, Germany, to escape the Nazi government and start a better life. Michael, however, is more excited about the trip than the destination. They'll be riding aboard the Hindenburg, a giant airship kept afloat with helium. Although flammable, the gas is safely contained. Still, Michael soon suspects that another passenger wants to blowup the airship. Can he solve the mystery and stop a near certain disaster?
