Autobiography of Lindbergh's historic adventure piloting his single-engine plane, the Spirit of St. Louis, from New York to Paris on the first nonstop flight over the Atlantic Ocean in May 1927. "It was in this book, written over a period of seventeen years, that he tried to represent as accurately as he possibly could both the story and the meaning of his 1927 flight. In doing this, inevitably, he also told the reader who he was."--Reeve Lindbergh, "Introduction"
