Amelia Earhart Flying Solo by John Burke

Earhart grew up at a time when many believed that men alone had the right to experience the thrill of adventure - but, from the moment she saw her first aeroplane, she knew it was her destiny to fly. She undertook record-setting flights, earning more fame and admiration with every boundary she broke. Sadly, her tragic and mysterious disappearance over the Pacific remains one of the great unsolved mysteries. This fascinating biography captures her grit and unwavering determination to chart her own path in a patriarchal world.
