Synopsis: Harriet Quimby was born in the 19th century, lived a few short years in the 20th century, and had dreams for women that almost transcended the 21st century.

She was highly competitive and a fearless, independent young woman with self confidence, beauty, ambition and brains. Harriet Quimby did not marry, drove an automobile, used a camera, a typewriter and flew an airplane. Any of these individually would have been a problem for men in the late years of Vistorian America, but all of these accomplishments rolled into one woman were impossible for most men to deal with.

This book provides the first look at a woman who was the product of the unlikely combination of the American west and Victorian America. It celebrates her achievements in aviation and preserves the aviation sector of women's history.
