Listen! The Wind is the story of a survey flight around the Norht Atlantic Ocean in 1933. It is a true and accurate account of various incidents which occurred in flying from Africa to South America. The purpose of the flight was to study the air-routes between America and Europe. At that time, the air-routes of the world were entering their final stage of development. The countries had already been crossed and the continents connected. It remained only for the oceans to be spanned. Their great over-water distances constituted the last major barrier to the commerce of air.
