Thom Hook's book, Shenandoah Saga was published in 1973. It was written to commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of the creation of the USS Shenandoah--the first American-built, helium-filled rigid airship. This book traces the history of the naval airship from its preplanning stages to its tragic crash on September 3, 1925.
