Publisher Description

A exciting new biography of America's first lady of flight.

As a tomboy growing up in Kansas, Amelia Earhart delighted in trying new and risky things, once even building a roller-coaster in her grandparents' backyard. In her 20s she fell in love with flight while watching an aerobatics exhibition and grew even more enthralled when she took her first airplane ride.

At age 24 she earned her pilot's wings and 1928 took part in the transatlantic "Friendship" flight. Her willowy build, wholesome smile, and tousled blonde hair invited comparison to the celebrated pilot Charles Lindbergh, and "Lady Lindy" charmed the public with her unassuming manner.

Lori Van Pelt's Amelia Earhart: The Sky's No Limit takes readers through Earhart's career triumphs and tragedies. It explorers not only her accomplishments in the field of flight, but also her struggles in the male-dominated world of aviation.

Named to the New York Public Library's Best Books for the Teen Age 2006

This is a good book with many story's of her life it is very inspiring. I enjoyed this book for many reasons but mostly because I enjoy reding biographies and nonfiction book
S. Amelia was a great person and did so many wonderful things in her life but had to die so painfully and quick. I think that this book deserves more readers. I also think that miss.

Thank you for trying your best to learn about miss.Amelia Earhart I bet if she were still alive that she would be crying
