Charles Lindbergh's epic non-stop flight from New York to Paris in a single-engine aircraft was the biggest media event of the 1920s, and the feat set up the United States to become a world leader in aviation. There was much more to Lindbergh than this single achievement, however, and so this biography pairs vintage photographs with contemporary text to create a portrait of this bold visionary whose fame may have been his undoing. "[This] may well be the best photographic biography ever produced…. The book is objective and riveting—the perfect example of how photographs can tell a story."—Jean Edward Smith
