This is a book that takes us back to the planning stage of commercial aviation in the 1930s. Anne Morrow Lindbergh writes with such heart and humanity that you feel a part of each moment she describes. She and her husband exhibited exceptional daring, heroism, intelligence and discipline as they stoically endured hardships and discomforts. It is good to be reminded of human capacity left to experience and instinct minus electronic equipment. It is uplifting* reading about these two people flying in a small seaplane for thousands of miles across land and ocean to stake out routes for future passenger travel.
