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. Lindbergh's wife, the writer Anne Morrow Lindbergh, gave Berg unrestricted access to her husband's and her own voluminous personal papers--and he made good use of them to assess both the couple's relationship and their activities. Probably the most startling revelation is a brief but candid discussion of Anne's affair in the late 1950s with a New Jersey doctor, which helped assuage her need to vent emotions in a way her buttoned-up husband found insupportable. (During the horrendous days in 1932 when their 20-month-old son was kidnapped and killed, Berg notes, she never once saw Charles cry.) The biography is solid on all aspects of Lindbergh's career, including his notorious urging that America stay out of World War II; Berg rebuts charges that Lindbergh was a Nazi or a traitor, but rightly criticizes the anti-Semitism latent in some of his speeches. With this book, Berg succeeds in surveying Lindbergh's fascinating life and assessing its historic impact.

The Ghosts of Hopewell: Setting the Record Straight in the Lindbergh Case
by Jim Fisher
The sad story of Charles Lindbergh's baby, kidnapped and murdered at the height of America's love affair with its aviator hero, is common knowledge, as is the scandal and corruption surrounding the conviction and execution of Bruno Hauptmann for that crime. In The Ghosts of Hopewell, Jim Fisher tells us another story, one more surprising in its lack of conspiracy and intrigue. Fisher writes simply, clearly, and with conviction--firmly convinced that Hauptmann was indeed the killer. As he sorts through the evidence, the testimony, the motives, and the crime itself, it becomes clear to the reader, too, that this was not simply a case of corrupt politicians and law enforcement officials trying to put a controversial murder to rest. It was, as believed originally, a case of an unemployed immigrant who saw an opportunity to make a few quick bucks on the brutal murder of the innocent child of America's celebrity of the day. --Lisa Higgins -
