Image of item
Book
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!
