Night Flight: Amelia Earhart Crosses the Atlantic (2011)
Vivid paintings and words
detail Amelia Earhart’s first solo flight across the Atlantic in 1932 from
Harbour Grace, Newfoundland to Ireland. Amelia wants to make this crossing
because “women must try to do things as men have tried”. Her skills, passion, courage
and stamina are clearly seen as she struggles to navigate the red Vega through
night thunderstorms, broken altimeter, icy wings, and natural human drowsiness
as night passes.
For ages six to eight.
