About This Item

New York: Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, 1978. Hard Cover. Good/Good. Former library copy - usual marks. 1978 Hard Cover. We have more books available by this author!. xxi, 423 pp. Dust jacket notes: "This is Charles A. Lindbergh's story of his own life. It is the story of the events he caused, and their effects on him. It is the story of the values he learned as a boy in Minnesota and how they were enhanced, or changed, or supplanted as he lived through a century dominated by science and war and technology and nationalism. He was probably the greatest aviator of all time. He was certainly the most celebrated young man in American history. He was also a scientist, soldier, conservationist, and adviser to industry and government on flight. He was a superb writer, as this book so dramatically confirms. Autobiography of Values is a rare work, the spare and beautiful telling of an American life that belongs with the great memoirs in our literature: Franklin, Adams, Steffens. The depth of Lindbergh's feeling for life, at times poetical and mystical, is shown by him in settings around the earth: Africa, the Pacific islands, Europe, Mexico, England, France, Germany, Russia, India. At the end, he was still a questing man, an adventurer in space and time and spirit." With 81 Photographs.

Synopsis

From his days as a barnstorming pilot to his transatlantic flight to his role in mapping international mail routes, Lindbergh never stopped challenging himself. This is an unprecedented view of an extraordinary man. New Introduction by Reeve Lindbergh; Index; photographs and maps.
