Reviews and Notes

Summary/Annotation ->  Charles Lindbergh captured the world's imagination with his solo flight from New York to Paris in 1927. A charming, handsome man, he gained instant international fame, but celebrity brought with it a tremendous burden. After his marriage, the press hounded the newlyweds. When his baby was kidnapped and later found dead, the press became insatiable. The Lindberghs retreated but could not escape the arising murmurings of Nazi sympathies, which would dog Lindberg until his death. This comprehensive book features over 250 never-before-published black-and-white and colour artifacts and illustrations as well as a gatefold illustration that reconstructs the Spirit of St. Louis and a map-timeline of Lindbergh's famous flight.
