LINDBERGH: A Photographic History of the Lone Eagle

BOULDER, Colo., May 31, 2017 /PRNewswire/ Many Americans who no longer remember the legacy of the world's first true media celebrity have forgotten Charles A. Lindberghaviator, adventurer, author, activist, pathfinder, fighter pilot, and conservationist. This book brings back to life that epic career with 240 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.

"The concept of a photographic biography of Lindbergh is daunting, but the authors have served up a masterpiece that reflects their knowledge of and interest in the subject. The remarkable photographs march us quickly through Lindbergh's turbulent life, and are given additional dimension via the short but meaningful narrative."

From review by: Walter Boyne who is a retired USAF Command Pilot, aviation historian, and author of more than 50 books. He is a former director of the National Air & Space Museum and a former Chairman of the National Aeronautic Association.
