School Library Journal Review

Gr 6-10-This well-written book gives insight into a shy but purposeful man. Koopmans describes Lindbergh's unconventional early family life, career, and legacy, and is commendably unbiased about his subject's unpopular political beliefs prior to World War II. Lindbergh's famous transatlantic flight is described in detail. The kidnapping of his son is treated without sensationalism and includes a discussion of Lindbergh's own involvement in the investigation. The descriptively titled chapters have numerous subheadings. Framed inserts from primary sources and many high-quality, black-and-white photographs are well placed within the text. However, the date given for Kristallnacht is incorrect; it took place on November 9-10, 1938, not in 1936. Nonetheless, this title can be read from cover to cover or used for reports.-Nancy P.
