Book Summary

The year 1997 marks the hundredth anniversary of the birth of Amelia Earhart.  A courageous woman who inspired many to reach for the skies, she was the fiurst woman to fly solo across the Atlantic.  Her aviation accomplishments helped make air travel commonplace, and her indefatigable spirit was, and still is, an inspiration to millions.  She is an American icon.

In 1937, at age thirty-nine, Amelia attempted her most daring feat--a flight around the world.  It was not the first time Amelia Earhart had tried to do something no one else had ever done.  This time, though, she would fail tragically.

What happened to Amelia Earhart?  This question has been asked for decades.  In Amelia, bestselling authors Donald Goldstein and Katherine Dillon review the existing theories about what happened when the world's most revered aviatrix disappeared over the Pacific Ocean.  They provide new insights into a mystery that has confounded searchers for sixty years.

Much more than an investigation of Amelia's disappearance, 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.
