    1 thought on “An American Hero: The True Story of Charles a Lindbergh

    1. This was a good book. I have a greater understanding of Charles Lindberg the American Hero than ever before. I've seen the Spirit of St. Louis at the Smithsonian before. However, now that I've read the book, I'd be interested in seeing it again.

    2. This is a YA biography of Charles Lindbergh, published in 1996. The strongest chapters are the one concerning the flight to Paris and the chapter on the Lindbergh kidnapping. Lots of photos are in the book and add to the book's information. Source notes, bibliography, and end notes are included. Because the books was published in 1996, there is no information about Lindbergh's second family in Germany. Students will have to look elsewhere for that information. However, the author does a good job [...]

    3. I'm still not sure if Lindberg is an American hero even after reading this. He comes off a little selfish and spoiled and there is of course a hint of racism- his brief admiration for the Nazis prior to WWII, This the author tries to counter with Lindberg's friendships with a Jewish industrialist(?) I read it a few years ago so my memory is fuzzy. There is a tedium of detail as in most epic type biographies but the historical era and tie-ins are educational.

    4. Very well written succint and well researched; not only the warm and fuzzy hero story, but the bare bones of his personality. Ikept wondering how his wife put up with all of the demands he made on her like leaviing a baby at home so she could travel with him. Long, and worth the read.
