Anne Morrow Lindbergh: Between the Seas and the Stars
Anne Morrow once said she wanted to marry a hero. Perhaps she thought a hero would transform her - a quiet, reserved person - into someone more adventurous and exciting. Years later, Anne did marry a hero: Charles Lindbergh, who had made the first solo airplane flight across the Atlantic Ocean.
Through her husband, Anne learned to pilot open cockpit, bi-winged airplanes, and she and Charles flew all over the world, setting up new air routes and promoting air travel. But being married to a hero also meant being in the public eye. The crush of adoring crowds could be annoying, and when their young son was kidnapped, Anne learned that being a celebrity could have tragic results.
