Kwing the risks, but taking the chance anyway - that was the internal compass that guided Amelia Earhart. This fascinating biography captures: Amelia's impressive sense of daring, evident from a very young age; her eagerness to promote women's abilities and desire to contribute to the world around her; her many firsts - including becoming the first female to fly solo across the Atlantic and her sudden disappearance over the Pacific, which remains one of aviation's most haunting unsolved mysteries.
