Quote- "I realized that If I had to choose, I would rather have birds than airplanes.

In wilderness I sense the miracle of life, and behind it our scientific accomplishments fade to trivia.

Living in dreams of yesterday, we find ourselves still dreaming of impossible future conquests."

Charles Lindbergh lived a long and successful life, and at the climax of it he set records. Born on February 4th, 1902 Charles Augustus Lindbergh was one of three children born to Evangeline Lindbergh, and Charles Lindbergh. Early life for Charles included graduating from university of Wisconsin- Madison. Charles engineered a plane called The Spirit of St. Louis. Lindbergh is most famous for his non stop flight across the Atlantic ocean, not only beating a record for longest flight, but becoming the first man to fly across the Atlantic.

Along with success in his life Lindbergh also had troubles. Lindbergh's son, Charles Lindbergh III was kidnapped. A ransom was offered for his son, the kidnapper demanding $70,000 for his sons return. After the baby was kidnapped however he was also killed. This caused the Lindberghs great grief, and caused them to leave their mansion and move away. Lindbergh lived until he was 72, and died from cancer on August 26th, 1974 in Kipahulu, Hawaii.
