I knew a little about the Lindbergh’s prior to reading Lindbergh by A. Scott Berg; however, I had no idea that either Charles or Anne had written anything. Apparently they were quite prolific!!! Charles wrote on a wide variety of subjects – his iconic flight, of course, but also everything from science to the war. Anne actually wrote more on their flight experiences than Charles did, and wrote more works. So I wanted to share their writing endeavors – because I am interested in reading some of them!
- We – The first of Charles’ books, written shortly after his iconic flight – he discusses his life, flight, and future of aviation
- The Spirit of St. Louis – A description of his trans-Atlantic flight – written in an adventure style
- The Culture of Organs (coauthored with Dr. Alexis Carrel) – writing about their work devising a pump to keep organs alive and sterile while outside the body during surgery – their work on the “Lindbergh pump”.
- Of Flight and Life – his reminiscences on flight and life
- The Wartime Journals of Charles A. Lindbergh – the name pretty much describes it – it is journal entries
- Boyhood on the Upper Mississippi – here Charles looks back on his childhood and times prior to WWI
- Autobiography of Values – published following his death, a collection of Lindbergh’s writings
- North to the Orient – Anne’s account of the duo’s flight to Asia
- Listen! The Wind – Anne’s account of their flight from Africa to South America
- The Wave of the Future: A Confession of Faith – written prior to the outbreak of WWII, this is Anne’s foreboding of what could happen if a war breaks out – a lot of harsh criticism came out about this book
- The Steep Ascent - A fictional account (novel) of an actual incident which occurred over the Alps during a flight to India.
- Gift from the Sea – this is a series of vignettes, based on shells, where Anne muses on the lives of women
- The Unicorn and other Poems – the only collection of poems that Anne compiled
- Dearly Beloved – Another novel by Anne about a June wedding
- Earth Shine – A meditation of Earth and man’s trip to the moon
- Bring Me a Unicorn: Diaries and Letters of Anne Morrow Lindbergh, 1922–1928 – Anne’s diaries of the years indicated
- Hour of Gold, Hour of Lead: Diaries And Letters Of Anne Morrow Lindbergh, 1929–1932 - Anne’s diaries of the years indicated
- Locked Rooms and Open Doors: Diaries And Letters Of Anne Morrow Lindbergh, 1933–1935 - Anne’s diaries of the years indicated
- The Flower and the Nettle: Diaries And Letters Of Anne Morrow Lindbergh, 1936–1939 - Anne’s diaries of the years indicated
- War Without and Within: Diaries And Letters Of Anne Morrow Lindbergh, 1939–1944 - Anne’s diaries of the years indicated
I am most interested in reading We and The Spirit of St. Louis by Charles Lindbergh and North to the Orient and Listen! The Wind by Anne Morrow Lindbergh. I am interested in hearing in their own words about their expeditions.
Have you read any of these books? What did you think?
