Amelia Earhart - Sky Pioneer
Exploits in the air!
Sky Pioneer: A Photobiography of Amelia Earhart by Corinne Szabo
At the age of twenty-three, Amelia Earhart took a ride in an airplane…that experience showed her that she wanted to fly… so with determination she took flying lessons and by age twenty-five she bought her first plane!
Flying became the center point of her life and she became known as American’s heroine for her exploits in the air. She set speed records and made history for flying solo across the Atlantic, across the Pacific and across the country.
This book is magnificent – it has over sixty photographs, with maps of her routes and quotations from her writing. Sky Pioneer: A Photobiography of Amelia Earhart shows us how audacious, visionary, capable, clear-sighted, and expressive she is.
She forged the way for women in aviation stating “Women should do for themselves what men have already done.” She encouraged women toward greater individuality, liberation and freedom of thought and action!
