In 1927 Charles Lindbergh had flown over the entire United States, looking down at the beautiful landscape. Many times before, he had made similar flights. But, he increasingly noticed how civilization was moving in on nature. He became troubled by this. Charles Lindbergh had always loved aviation. But now he began to wonder if the technology he had done so much to advance had really helped humanity. In September 1962 the Lindberghs were warmly welcomed to the White House by President John F. Kennedy.

But in his heart, he despised war. He believed that in the end, it accomplished nothing. He refused to change his position, even though it almost cost him his reputation. Although he passionately opposed the war, he almost died many times fighting for his country. He was far older than most other pilots. He could have easily avoided the danger of combat. In his later years, Charles Lindbergh remained a pioneer. He pointed out the real dangers of the destruction of the environment. He fought against rampant technology and for endangered species.
