Overview

The legendary spirit and inspiring determination of Amelia Earhart takes wing in this wonderful photobiography. Corinne Szabo uses quotes from Earhart's own writings, duotone photos, and superb maps to transport us back to the world of the sky pioneer who changed the history of women's aviation. The book also includes a detailed map charting the proposed around-the-world route of this American heroine's final flight.

The author paints an appealing portrait of a woman unafraid "to do the things one likes best, to speak up for what one believes in, to see life as a great adventure, to be 'true to oneself.'" We meet the woman behind the legend and experience her short, eventful life through a series of amazing photos. With her grace and daring Amelia Earhart has always been a role model for young women. This soaring biography will bring her story to a new generation in the 21st century.
