Summary "This well-researched book is a biography of the life--and disappearance--of Amelia Earhart, the pioneering aviator who was the first woman to fly solo over the Atlantic in 1928. But did Amelia's plane really crash and sink in 1937, or was her fate entirely different"-- Provided by publisher.
