A woman I met in graduate school did her thesis on female aviators of the 20th century. TShe would talk to me about the field of flying women and the challenges they faced to see their dreams soar. I found it fascinating.
Most people are aware of Amelia Earhart but it’s her mysterious disappearance rather than aviation accomplishments that draws our attention. This book details the experiences of her sisters in the sky.
For more information about our sisters in the sky have a look at these resources:
