Unlike the majority of books on Earhart, this one focuses on her entire life, and not just her mysterious disappearance. The authors strongly emphasize that their subject was much more than another aviator trying to set new records.
Beginning with Amelia's childhood, they analyze why Earhart became not only one of aviation's great pioneers, but also a champion of women's rights and a devoted member of her family.
When the inevitable disappearance is covered, it is handled with an almost scientific methodology, looking at all of the currently held theories.
This intimate biography, Amelia: A Life of the Aviation Legend, describes a compelling young woman who rejected society's traditional female role and overcame the stigma such independence brought her.
Amelia Earhart inspired many to reach for the skies and her story is still inspirational today.
