Overview

Flight by Robert Burleigh, Mike Wimmer

Winner of the Orbis Pictus Award for Nonfiction and Publishers Weekly Best Book of the Year.

Flight. Loneliness. Fear. Danger. Courage. Charles Lindbergh considered all these things and more when he set out for Paris on the morning of May 20, 1927, with only two compasses and the stars for his guides. Experience all the drama of Lindbergh's history-making flight with startling intimacy as you travel along with the first pilot to fly solo across the Atlantic, and follow the courage and endurance of one man who dared to make his dream come true.

"(A) glorious re-creation of an epic adventure."—Publishers Weekly
"Brings new life to one of the stories of the century."—Kirkus Reviews
