Charles A. Lindbergh, Lone Eagle - 3rd edition

Charles A. Lindbergh, Lone Eagle (ISBN10: 0321093232; ISBN13: 9780321093233)
ISBN13: 978-0321093233
ISBN10: 0321093232

Summary: In the 1920s America yearned for a hero. They had great baseball players and actors, but they longed for a seminal achievement - authentically heroic in its defiance of the odds. The Lone Eagle delivered, and the public treated him like a hero from a fairy tale, with rewards of wealth, fame, and a princess in marriage. But domestic tragedy followed. And so, in this wonderful concise biography, Walter Hixson has shown how "Lucky Lindy" exemplifies the triump
hs and tragedies of America's coming of age.

The titles in the Library of American Biography Series make ideal supplements for American History Survey courses or other courses in American history where figures in history are explored. Paperback, brief, and inexpensive, each interpretative biography in this series focuses on a figure whose actions and ideas significantly influenced the course of American history and national life. At the same time, each biography relates the life of its subject to the broader themes and developments of the times.
