One of the most famous aviators of all time, Amelia Earhart took the golden age of flying by storm! Taking her first flight lesson in 1920, Earhart would go on to set the world altitude record, be the first woman to fly across the Atlantic Ocean alone, and many more feats. Who knows what she could have accomplished if not for her mysterious disappearance while attempting to fly around the entire world in 1937.

This incredible history of Amelia Earhart is written especially for young adult readers. It is loaded with full color illustrations, comprehensive timelines, fascinating sidebars, and info on key figures in Earhart's story.
