The $25,000 Flight

How Lindbergh Set a Daring Record...


Formats & editions


This brand-new Stepping Stones title about America’s first superstar pilot, Charles Lindbergh, ties in with the exciting relaunch of Stepping Stones Nonfiction.

The true-story adventure of Lindbergh’s solo flight across the Atlantic Ocean comes to life in this early chapter book, perfect for young readers.

In the 1920s, flying was brand new—and very dangerous. A $25,000 prize for the first flight from New York to Paris went unclaimed for years. Many teams tried. And many teams failed. Still, Charles Lindbergh felt he had a shot at the prize. He wasn’t famous. He wasn’t rich. But he was determined. He’d cross the ocean in a tiny plane . . . and he’d do it all by himself!

History Stepping Stones now feature updated content that emphasizes Common Core and today’s renewed interest in nonfiction. Perfect for home, school, and library bookshelves!
