Recomended Books on Fireplaces and Chimneys and Other Stuff
by A. Scott Berg
"Charles Lindbergh's solo flight from New York to Paris captured the imagination of a postwar generation hungry for heroes, and cemented an exalted spot for the 25-year-old pilot from Minnesota in the collective American imagination. A. Scott Berg's thorough new biography of the aviator suggests that despite the public scrutiny that accompanied his every move until his death in 1974, Lindbergh remained an intensely private man. The son of ill-matched parents who separated when he was 6, he was painfully shy and emotionally guarded. "Aviation created a brotherhood of casual acquaintances ... in which he felt comfortable," writes Berg with characteristic perceptiveness." Amazon review
In Scott Berg's description, Lindbergh reminds me of my son, my father and myself (don't we wish). It must be the universal truths of human experience in the hands of a capable writer - and an interesting perspective on a big slice of American history. I didn't even want to read about the kidnapping but I couldn't put it down for long. - Jim Buckley
