Rate this:
In 1927, Charles Lindbergh took a big risk flying from New York City to Paris nonstop. He wanted to do it in a single-engine plane alone, something that had never been attempted before. Through a detailed account of Lindbergh's remarkable flight, readers are introduced to the history of aviation and the innovations that followed his feat. Full-color photographs allow readers to travel aboard the Spirit of St. Louis with Lindbergh and further onto the first airlines, World War II bombers, and more. Sidebars offer historical context to bring Lindbergh's flight into focus with other events of the 20th century.
