Few American icons provoke more enduring fascination than Charles Lindbergh—renowned for his one-man transatlantic flight in 1927, remembered for the sorrow surrounding the kidnapping and death of his firstborn son in 1932, and reviled by many for his opposition to America's entry into World War II. Lindbergh's is "a dramatic and disturbing American story," says the Los Angeles Times Book Review, and this biography—the first to be written with unrestricted access to the Lindbergh archives and extensive interviews of his friends, colleagues, and close family members—is "the definitive account."

Review:

In 1927, Charles Augustus Lindbergh made the world smaller when, at 25, he completed his fabled flight from New York to Paris. He spent the rest of his life watching the world close in around him. Actor Eric Stoltz smoothly captures A. Scott Berg's erudite prose, impressive narrative drive, and fascinating minutiae, and by doing so earns an intense sympathy for and understanding of Lindbergh's relentless need for privacy and his frustration at losing it to his worldwide fame. (Running time: six hours, four cassettes) --Lou Schuler

From the Inside Flap:

Read by Eric Stoltz

From one of America's most acclaimed biographers, here at last is the definitive life of one of the most legendary, controversial, and enigmatic figures in American history - Charles A. Lindbergh.

National Book Award winner A. Scott Berg is the first and only writer to have been given unrestricted access to the massive Lindbergh archives - more than two thousand boxes of personal papers, including reams of unpublished letters and diaries - and to be allowed to freely interview Lindbergh's friends, colleagues, and family members, including his children and his widow, Anne Morrow Lindbergh.  The result is a brilliant biography that clarifies a life long blurred by myth and half-truth.

From the moment he landed in Paris on May 21, 1927, Lindbergh found himself thrust upon an odyssey for which he was ill prepared - the first modern media superstar, defied and demonized many times over in a single lifetime.  Berg casts dramatic new light on Lindbergh's childhood; his astonishing flight; the kidnapping of his son, which has been called "The Crime of the Century;" Lindbergh's fascination with Hitler's Germany; and his unsung work in his later years.

In all, this is a most compelling story of a most significant life: the most private of public figures finally revealed with a sweep and detail never before possible.  This is at once Lindbergh the hero and Lindbergh the man.
