“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.”

“The amazing journey of this American hero is a reminder of the many challenges that once faced aviators. As I travel the night skies over the North Atlantic, I think of the fearless explorer who blazed a trail for all of us who fly commercially. LINDBERGH is a must for your coffee table, if you are an aviator or not.”
Captain Glen Fraser, B777 Airline Pilot

thoughtful retrospective will surprise, illuminate and entertain you all at
once. The authors have presented him more as a genuine human being than a media darling. Aviation history at its finest."
