This biography about Charles A. Lindbergh covers his whole life from childhood through his eventual depression and death. Charles Lindbergh lived an interesting life. His first son was kidnapped and murdered. His father was a politician for the state of Minneapolis. His grandpa spent a lot of time with him and also was a great inventer. All of these helped me really get into the book. At certain points I didn¿t want to put the book down! I also liked this book because I could relate to him. He was bad in school but turned out to be a hero. He didn¿t like school, went to collage and didn¿t do well once again. Then, he went to flight school and found flying was what he really enjoyed. After discovering this interest, Charles Lindbergh soon became a hero. This story was inspirational to me.
