Overview

Amelia Earhart captured the hearth and imaginations of people around the world when she became the first woman to cross the Atlantic Ocean by airplane. This book, her personal account of the historic flight, sparkles with her high-spirited charm and adventurous determination. Through she would not make the Atlantic crossing alone until 1932, Earhart was already an accomplished aviator when selected in the spring of 1928 to accompany pilot Wilmer Stulz and mechanic Louis "Slim" Gordon in the Friendship.

20 Hrs., 40 Min. offers a rare glimpse into the inner life of "Lady Lindy" who would become a legend following her disappearance over the Pacific Ocean while attempting a round-the-world flight. Amelia Earhart was a truly remarkable woman, and reading this book, writes series editor Anthony Brandt in the introduction, "will help you understand what all the fuss was about."
