Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous illustrations accompany this kid-friendly biography of Amelia Earhart. With excited people waving good-bye as she takes off on her journey across the sea from Newfoundland to Ireland, she encounters dangers, both natural and mechanical. She traveled two thousand and twenty-six miles and fourteen hours and fifty-six minutes dodging fierce waters and almost-endless exhaustion to achieve her lofty goal.

Why? "Because women must try to do things as men have tried"- Amelia Earhart.
