A very readable, suspenseful adventure story by L. Frank Baum (writing as Edith Van Dyne). It takes more than a few unbelievable turns, but I can see how this would be well-received by girls interested in aviation in the first decades of the 20th Century. A far sight better written than most of the youth-oriented adventure fiction of the era.
David
A cut far above the standard youth-adventure novels of the early decades of the 20th century. Baum (writing as Edith Van Dyne) has a keen hold of human nature and realizes his characters in a very engaging manner.
