B174 – Lindbergh: Flight’s Enigmatic Hero / By Von Hardesty

From the dust jacket:  “Lindbergh’s aerial feat struck his contemporaries as epochal, sparking an unprecedented outpouring of popular adoration of the new aviation hero.  And for the next half century, Lindbergh – the Lone Eagle – wrestled with the perils of celebrity, even as he championed a sequence of causes from commercial aviation to American Neutrality in Word War II, from scientific advances in medicine to the preservation of the environment.  His life was punctuated by both triumph and tragedy."  Large-format hardcover, pp 223  $ 100.00
