Lindbergh in Montana: An Air Adventurer Leaves a Legacy in the Treasure State (Paperback)
Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
Charles Lindbergh, the most famous person in the world after his 1927 transatlantic flight and a legendary flier to this day, made a lasting impact on Montana. He first came to the Treasure State in 1922 as a wing walker and parachute jumper with a barnstorming outfit that performed at fairs and exhibitions in Billings, Lewistown, and neighboring communities. He returned to Montana in 1927 during his nationwide tour to promote commercial flight, and he visited the state several more times before his death in 1974. Lindbergh's influence on Montana goes beyond airplanes and flight. He is credited with influencing the state's efforts to conserve its natural beauty, and his vision lives on.
