Description

Please Let Me Fly is the revealing life-story of Grace Huntington, an unsung hero who exemplified what it meant to be anything but a stereotypical woman. Huntington gives us a glimpse of what it was like to set her own course which clashed with her mother's and society's ideas. Perhaps nothing personifies the defiant personality of Grace Huntington more than her success in male dominated industries of flying and screenwriting. As a professional pilot, she set an altitude records for light planes in 1938 and 1940. And as a resilient symbol of strength to American women, she describes her experiences while working as the only woman "story man" for Walt Disney and demonstrates her persistence while trying to find a job in aviation. Please Let Me Fly brings to life her story more than sixty years later. The book includes lost documents, letters and photos that tell the story of a remarkable woman who served as inspiration to all women seeking their own defined roles in society.
