Overview

Many Americans who no longer remember the legacy of the world's first true media celebrity have forgotten Charles A. Lindbergh–aviator, adventurer, author, activist, pathfinder, fighter pilot, and conservationist. This book brings back to life that epic career in evocative text and hundreds of photographs, many rarely published, reawakening the careers of a man and his wife who achieved more, in more varied fields, than perhaps any couple in history. Lindbergh's epic non-stop flight from New York to Paris in a single-engine aircraft was the biggest media event in the 1920s and set up the United States to become a world leader in aviation.
