The historians who gave us The Pearl Harbor Papers and Miracle at Midway here look at much more than Amelia Earhart's flying career or her 1937 disappearance; they consider the whole of her remarkable life.
"The authors strongly emphasize that their subject was much more than another aviator trying to set new records. Beginning with her childhood, they analyze why Earhart became not only one of aviation's great pioneers, but also a champion of women's rights and a devoted member of her family. When the inevitable disappearance is covered, it is handled with an almost scientific methodology, looking at all of the currently held theories."—School Library Journal
