    1 thought on “Charles Lindbergh and the Spirit of St. Louis

    1. I was honestly bored with this book when I first read it. I skimmed most of it. Then I looked it over again for facts and I realized how interesting it really was. Never read a nonfiction book for fun when you are really tired because it will obviously seem like a dull book. But in reality it is jammed with info.

    2. Illustrated with newly taken color photographs of the plane - the most precious artifact in the museum - and archival photographs of Lindbergh both from his specific moment in history and throughout his life, this book captures the excitement of the early, pioneering days of aviation.

    3. After reading that the Aviator's Wife, I needed a little background info on Charles Lindbergh.
