Publisher Comments:

Along with most of my fellow fliers, I believed that aviation had a brilliant future. Now we live, today, in our dreams of yesterday; and, living in those dreams, we dream again...." — From The Spirit of St. Louis

Charles A. Lindbergh captured the world's attention — and changed the course of history — when he completed his famous nonstop flight from New York to Paris in 1927. In The Spirit of St. Louis, Lindbergh takes the reader on an extraordinary journey, bringing to life the thrill and peril of trans-Atlantic travel in a single-engine plane. Eloquently told and sweeping in its scope, Lindbergh's Pulitzer Prize-winning account is an epic adventure tale for all time.

About the Author

Charles A. Lindbergh was twenty-five years old when he made his world-famous journey across the North Atlantic. A native of Little Falls, Minnesota, he would later serve as an aircraft consultant to the Ford Motor Company and the United Aircraft Corporation during World War II. In 1954, Lindbergh was appointed brigadier general in the air force reserve. He died in 1974. Reeve Lindbergh is the author of several books for adults and children. They include the memoir of her childhood and youth, Under a WingNo More Words, a description of the last years of her mother, Anne Morrow Lindbergh, and Forward From Here, a memoir about entering her sixties. She lives with her husband, Nat Tripp, and several animals on a farm in northern Vermont.

A great novel based on his amazing flight to Paris. The only better feat of Lindbergh's is when he built the first artificial heart.
