A picture book biography of the first woman in flight—Amelia Earhart—by NCTE Orbis Pictus Award-winner Robert Burleigh.
Award-winning author Robert Burleigh has captured Amelia Earhart's first solo flight across the Atlantic in 1932. She was only the second person to do this – and the first woman. Rich in detail, feeling and incident this is nonfiction with edge and action, a you-are-there experience made more dramatic and real by Wendell Minor's vivid paintings.
