Charles A. Lindbergh - aviator, adventurer, author, activist, pathfinder, fighter pilot, conservationist - has been forgotten by many Americans who no longer remember the checkered legacy of the world's first true media celebrity. 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."
