The Rise and Fall of Charles Lindbergh


Formats & editions


From a true master of YA nonfiction, author of the acclaimed THE FAMILY ROMANOV, discover the dark side of Charles Lindbergh in a riveting biography of one of America's most celebrated heroes, and most complicated, troubled men.

First human to cross the Atlantic via airplane; one of the first American media sensations; Nazi sympathizer and anti-Semite; loner whose baby was kidnapped and murdered; champion of Eugenics, the science of improving a human population by controlled breeding; tireless environmentalist. Charles Lindbergh was all of the above and more. Here is a rich, multi-faceted, utterly spellbinding biography about an American hero who was also a deeply flawed man. In this time where values Lindbergh held, like white Nationalism and America First, are once again on the rise, THE RISE AND FALL OF CHARLES LINDBERGH is essential reading for teens and history fanatics alike.
