Pulitzer Prize, Biography/Autobiography, 1999
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."

I always love Scott Berg's Bios'.
Yes--but it's a long but outstanding read.
Of course, the actual flight over the Atlantic, and the dignity in which he was the major player in his sad final moments.
The frolics on the islands in his golden years--I never would have believed it of such a straight laced guy.
You guessed it: LUCKY LINDY. He and his courageous wife took so many life threatening chances flying those planes all over the world--I'm so glad they never crashed.
The kidnapping was so unfair of FATE. If people think rich people have it so good, they must read Scott Berg's biography.
HIs wife was an absolutely wonderful woman. I don't think liberated women have given her as much attention as Zelda.
