about

Can Charles Lindbergh set a world record? Follow America’s first superstar pilot in this high-flying Totally True Adventure.
 
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!
 
After you've read the story, don't miss the bonus content with extra facts, a timeline, and more 20th century history, geography, and science-tie-ins!
A former editor for Random House and Golden Books, LORI HASKINS HOURAN is the author of numerous picture books and and leveled reading titles, including Too Many Cats and Too Many Dogs. She lives in Palm Beach, Florida, with her two sons.
