In the 1920s, flying was brand new—and very dangerous.
A $25,000 prize for the first flight from New York to Paris went unclaimed for years. Many teams tried. And many teams failed. Still, Charles Lindbergh felt he had a shot at the prize. He wasn’t famous. He wasn’t rich. But he was determined. He’d cross the ocean in a tiny plane . . . and he’d do it all by himself!
