Summary
A biography of the American aviator who, in 1927, became the first person to fly non-stop across the Atlantic Ocean. Charles Lindbergh flew alone over the Atlantic Ocean for more than 33 hours in May 1927, becoming the first person to fly successfully from New York to Paris. That short period of time -- little more than a single day -- would forever change his life, and the future course of aviation. However, the successful transatlantic flight was only the beginning of Lindbergh's achievements. Charles Lindbergh offers a fascinating peek into the evolution of aviation -- from the early days of daredevil pilots to the successful development of commercial passenger service and the modern airports we know today. Learn more about Lindbergh's story of triumph and tragedy -- the triumph of a pioneer who dreamed of new adventures and then made them come true, and the tragedy of a solitary man burdened by sudden, overwhelming celebrity
