Loss of Eden: A Biography of Charles and Anne Morrow Lindbergh by Joyce Milton
Harpercollins | 1993 | ISBN: 0060165030 | 520 pages | EPUB | 3 MB
This extraordinary dual biography reveals almost as much about American society as it does about the celebrated, often controversial careers of Charles Lindbergh (1902-1974) and his wife, Anne Morrow Lindbergh (b. 1906). Milton ( The Yellow Kids ) examines the events and circumstances that brought the couple fame: Charles's unprecedented nonstop solo airplane flight across the Atlantic in 1927; Anne's social prominence; the kidnapping and murder of their son in 1932; their notorious role in the isolationist movement during WW II; their literary achievements; Charles's naive respect for Hitler.
