Good-bye Charles Lindbergh by Louise Borden
In the spring of 1929, Colonel Charles Lindbergh, famous for his 1927 solo flight across the Atlantic from New York to Paris, set down his biplane in a small field near Canton, Mississippi. On his various flights around the country he liked to land in out of the way places for the night to avoid the crowds. In this story, Gil Wickstrom witnesses the landing in a neighbour's field and is lucky enough to meet Lindbergh in person. This book has been beautifully illustrated by Thomas B Allen. This book could be easily enjoyed in one silent reading session.
