A very interesting book that takes you back to the pioneering days of flight. Earhart was on this flight to document it in film and notes yet she became the celebrity even though it was two men who flew the plane across the Atlantic. Just being the first female to cross the Atlantic was enough (three others had died trying). Earhart soloed across the Atlantic five years later. The book includes brief bit on her early years, the preparation, the flight, the future of aviation, women in aviation, and a retrospect. Well worth reading - quick and easy!
