Reviews

"[A] fast paced, richly detailed biography."--Publishers Weekly

"Ms. Rich vividly evoke[s] the tragic aspect of Amelia Earhart."--New York Times Book Review, Notable Book

"Earhart emerges as a complex, controversial, and fascinating flesh-and-blood woman of many facets. . . .Well-researched and intelligently written."--Chicago Tribune

"Defines Amelia Earhart by her courage, generosity, and determination, and not by the way her life ended."--American Heritage

"Rich's portrait reveals a determined, independent woman, brave enough 'to go where no one had gone and to do what no one had done' ... [and] illuminates the public and private life of a legendary flier, bringing her back to earth as a courageous woman who dreamed and dared all." --Christian Science Monitor

"Rich is a gifted writer ... A fascinating and inspirational tale of Earhart's fight for equal rights, international peace, and a world where flying would be accessible to all." --San Francisco Chronicle
