it was amazing

After reading this incredible book by Susan Butler i have a great appreciation for Amelia Earhart and all that she did for aviation and women during her time. so many people are only taught that she was the first woman to cross the Atlantic solo and she was a great aviatrix and about her unfortunate death and nothing else. Earhart was an extrodinary person, she was brilliant and courageous. how many people knew that not long before she disappeared she taught at Perdu University in Michigan on aviation? this book is what students should learn about her not just her journeys and death... yes they are a big part of her history but they're just the tip of what really made Amelia Earhart so enduring and fascinating. Susan Butler did amazing job uncovering the Amelia Earhart many do not know about.
