In the spring of 1929, Charles Lindbergh, famous throughout the world for his 1927 solo flight across the Atlantic, set down his small biplane in a field near Canton, Mississippi. He frequently landed for the night in out-of-the way places to avoid admiring crowds. A farm boy saw the biplane land in a field and rode over to discover the pilot was, in fact, Lindbergh. This book is based on that true story, and the author interviewed the man who was that boy. In this evocative story, simply and graphically told, Louise Borden captures young Gil Wickstrom's wonder and excitement at meeting his hero and seeing him off the next morning. Thomas B. Allen has made lovely and technically accurate paintings that enhance this memorable adventure.
