Adventure, Glamour, and Mystery

Determined and fiercely independent, she was the world's first heroine of the aviation age.

Amelia Earhart longed for new adventures and experiences that were often reserved for men. She flew solo when she was only twenty-one and owned an airplane by the time she was twenty-four. Eventually Amelia flew faster, higher, and farther than all but a few of the world's early aviators and gained a fame and celebrity that has rarely been equaled.

Join Amelia on her long distance flights as she battles storms across jungles, oceans, and deserts. Follow her until her last flight around the world, which remains one of the twentieth century's greatest unsolved mysteries.

About the Landmark series:
For over half a century, Landmark books have been an important part of home libraries. Jam-packed with exciting stories and adventures, the Landmark series is known as the first historical series for kids. Teaching parents continue to trust the Landmark name to engage their children with accurate information on well-known people and interesting periods in American history. The variety of subjects; action-filled, story-like narratives; large and clear print; and reasonable prices make the Landmark series an excellent and enjoyable way to learn more about history.

Extremely popular in the 1950s and 1960s, while these are all secular titles the fact that they were written as many as fifty years ago ensures their wholesomeness, as much as any book pertaining to the lives of mortal men can be wholesome.

I got Amelia Earhart - Flying Solo for my daughter who is obsessed with Amelia Earhart. She is a voracious reader and enjoyed this book and found it to be well written.

Amelia Earhart November 10, 2010
Reviewer: Misty Marr from Buckeye, AZ United States  
I didn't care for Amelia Earhart - Flying Solo.  The book itself is fine.  It was interesting, and there was nothing offensive in the way that it was written.  However, She is not someone that I want as a role modal for my children!  She was a staunch feminist.  Just before her wedding, she wrote a letter to her husband to be.  One of the thing she said was that neither of them should hold to the old fashioned notion of being faithful in their marriage.  She told her father that she had no hope of seeing him again if she died.  While I am OK with my children learning about the facts of history, I don't want them reading stories like this where the hero stands against what I believe.
