Overview

Longman is proud to publish the Library of American Biography series, offering ideal reading for introductory and upper-level courses in American history. These concise biographies focus on individuals whose actions and ideas greatly influenced American history and relate the lives of the subjects to the issues and events of their times.

Under new series editor Mark C. Carnes, the Library of American Biography series is being revised and updated with today's students in mind. All volumes are now offered at a lower price, and each new volume includes Study and Discussion Questions, which encourage readers to reflect on the role of the profiled individual in shaping American history.

This newly revised biography by Walter L. Hixson introduces students to the fascinating life of Charles A. Lindbergh, the rugged individualist who became a national hero after his transatlantic flight-only to fall out of America's favor and suffer personal tragedy later in life. Incorporating the latest scholarship, Charles A. Lindbergh: Lone Eagle considers Lindbergh not only as an individual, but in the larger context of the era that he came to personify.
