Description

Amelia Earhart--pioneer, adventurer, pilot As a child, Amelia Earhart wondered why there were no horoines in her favorite adventure stories. She resolved to change that when she grew up.

Her life became a great adventure story--and a great mystery, too. In 1937, on an around-the-world flight, Amelia disappeared. Today, her courage and sprit remain an inspiration to everyone who flies or dreams of adventure. Contains black-and-white illustrations. About the Women of Our Time series:
