This early work by Charles Lindbergh was an account of his historic transatlantic flight in 1927, but he was never happy with the publication. To correct this, he published The Spirit of St. Louis in 1953, which he felt accurately described the flight. Spirit of St. Louis went on to win the Pulitzer Prize for Autobiography in 1954. It was ghost written by his wife, Anne Morrow Lindbergh, and its success is widely attributed to her writing skills.
