Flight

Flight

by Robert Burleigh Illustrated by Mike Wimmer

Flight. Loneliness. Fear. Danger. Courage. Charles Lindbergh considered all these things and more when he set out for Paris on the morning of May 20, 1927, with only two compasses and the stars for his guides. Experience all the drama of Lindbergh's history-making flight with startling intimacy as you travel along with the first pilot to fly solo across the Atlantic, and follow the courage and endurance of one man who dared to make his dream come true.


"(A) glorious re-creation of an epic adventure". — Publishers Weekly, boxed review
