Amelia Earhart crafted a thrilling narrative for her first published work in 1928, detailing her first flight across the Atlantic with William Stultz. Combining actual log entries made during the voyage with childhood memories and her early interest in flight, Earhart’s tale ends with a broader discussion of women and aviation, breaking ground for the women’s rights movement in the mid 30’s. She would later make the first female solo flight across the Atlantic and then disappear in the Pacific during her attempted first female circumnavigation of the globe. Named one of National Geographic's "100 greatest adventure books of all time."
“Isolation breeds distrust and differences of outlook. Anything which tends to annihilate distance destroys isolation, and brings the world and its’ peoples closer together.” (Earhart) about Fine in Very Good dust jacket. (Item #1822)
