Bestselling authors Donald Goldstein and Katherine Dillon provide new insights into a mystery that has confounded searchers for over sixty years. Much more than an investigation of Amelia Earhart's disappearance, however, this intimate biography describes a compelling young woman who rejected society's traditional female role to pursue an exciting, path-breaking career and who overcame the stigma such independence brought her. Amelia Earhart inspired many to reach for the skies. Her indefatigable spirit was, and still is, an inspiration to millions.

From the Publisher:

"Presents an altogether different point of view . . . of Amelia Earhart and shows her in a most attractive and human way." -- Walter J. Boyne, former director, National Air and Space Museum

"A vivid portrait of a fascinating person who had a personality so captivating, who was so glad to be alive, and so dedicated to her chosen field that her reputation as a loyal, entertaining, and inspirational woman endures to this day." -- Air Classics

"Earhart's story soars again. . . . Most compelling is the portrayal of Earhart as traiblazer, a woman who confronted expectations of her time and shattered them." -- Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

About the Author:

The late Katherine V. Dillon, Donald M. Goldstein and the late Gordon W. Prange created numerous World War II classics, including At Dawn We Slept; Miracle at Midway; and God’s Samurai: Lead Pilot at Pearl Harbor (Brassey’s, Inc., reprint 2003).

Michael Wenger on several books, including The Way It Was: Pearl Harbor-The Original Photographs (Brassey’s, Inc., 1995); Rain of Ruin: A Photographic History of Hiroshima and Nagasaki (Brassey’s, Inc., 1995); and The Pearl Harbor Papers.
