Description
The first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean and the first person to fly solo across the Pacific, Amelia Earhart was immortalized as a lost aviator when her plane vanished in 1937. Yet this independent and ambitious woman was also a photographer, poet, hospital worker, truck hauler, fashion designer, social worker, and a student of chemistry, physics, and medicine. This illustrated biography offers previously unpublished photographs, artifacts, letters, documents, and maps, and includes newly revealed details about Earhart's life and about the search for her remains in the Pacific Ocean. Above all, it captures her zest for life and adventure.

"Lovers of biography should be sure to check out Susan Wels's Amelia Earhart.... Wels adds to the Earhart reservoir new research and fresh insights. The writing is lucid and well paced, and the layout is superb."Library Journal
