Heavily illustrated with photos, this book shows how in the 1920s America celebrated like never before. World War I was finally over and Americans eagerly looked ahead. Cities grew as the economy boomed. It was the era of Prohibition, when alcohol was illegal, but people drank liquor and listened to jazz music in secret nightclubs. Bold young women called “flappers” led a culture of revelry. It was a time for heroes and villains. Pilot Charles “Lucky Lindy” Lindbergh winged his way across the Atlantic. Meanwhile, Al Capone and his gang of mobsters ruled the streets of Chicago. As the decade ended, the world faced the Great Depression. Dictators such as Adolf Hitler began seizing power. Read about the The Roaring Twenties, a decade unlike any other.
