Charles Lindbergh was an American aviator who made the first non-stop, solo transatlantic flight. The 33+ hour flight from New York to France in The Spirit of St. Louis won fame and fortune for Lindbergh, but these ultimately resulted in tragedy when his infant son was kidnapped for ransom. Despite payment of the ransom, the child was murdered. Lindbergh later became a writer and published multiple memoirs; The Spirit of St. Louis, published in 1953, won Lindbergh a Pulitzer Prize.
