About this title


When Marie Meyer got her pilot's license in 1921, she was one of the first women in Missouri to qualify to fly an airplane. But Marie was not just a pilot, she was a barnstormer and wing walker. Marie and her Flying Circus traveled around the Midwest performing daring aerial stunts for eager crowds. She would stand on the wings of a plane while it flew at 100 miles per hour or jump from a plane with a parachute. In a time when few women ran their own businesses, Marie ran her Flying Circus for seven years and was active in the early years of aviation. Most importantly, Marie showed people that women could do anything. This book is included in the nonfiction book series, Notable Missourians, for young readers in grades 4 to 6 about people who contributed to Missouri's history or culture and who were born or lived in Missouri.
