Summary

In a time when women were treated as inferior to men, Amelia Earhart dared to fly higher. From her humble beginnings in a small Kansas town to her groundbreaking solo flight across the Atlantic, Earhart defied expectations and rose to become the most famous female pilot of all time. Despite the restrictions placed on women of her era, she broke through barriers and refused to allow society to label her. As a result, she made history through her daring flights all over the world. In 1937, she disappeared without a trace while on a solo flight around the world, but the legacy she left behind continues to inspire. Read about this remarkable aviation pioneer in Amelia Earhart.
