1. What is the Lindbergh family history before Charles Lindbergh, the aviator and subject of this biography, was born?

Lindbergh's father was born in Sweden as Charles August (C. A.) Mansson, but when he came to the U.S., he changed Mansson, which was fairly common, to Lindbergh, which is not as common. C.A. Lindbergh settled in Little Falls Minnesota, where he was a lawyer, and after his first wife died, he married Evangeline Lodge Land, who was younger than him, but she bore him a son, Charles Lindbergh, in 1902.

2. What was the childhood experience that left a long-lasting impression on Charles Lindbergh?

When he was three and a half years old, Lindbergh's family's house burned to the ground, and they had to stay at a hotel while they built anew.

3. What does Denenberg say about C.A. Lindbergh's marriage with Evangeline Lodge Land?

The marriage was coming apart by 1906, when C. A. was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives, but they stayed together for the sake of his political career. They did not, however, always live together, as C.A. spent time in Washington D.C. and Detroit, at his mother's house.
