I enjoyed reading/knowing more about Charles Lindbergh since I'm such a fan of his wife, Anne Morrow Lindbergh. I knew that he was a quiet man that didn't like the press at all, and partially blamed them for the kidnap/murder of his son, but I had no idea about his politics. Anyway, pretty good read. I might just bump it up to I really liked it. But I'll have to think about it first. I did like it though, and felt it was very informative.

Giblin worked on his school newspapers and wrote a play while he was at Western Reserve University. That play, My Bus Was Always Late, was published in 1954. He worked hard at writing plays, but disappointment followed.
