The details of her tragic final flight are well known, but this bold portrait instead focuses on the heroine's dynamic life. The first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic, Earhart was an irrepressible adventurer and accomplished pilot as well as a fierce advocate for women.Inspiring, colorful, and full of exciting details, Robert Burleigh and Bill Wylie's new collaboration shows Amelia Earhart as she's never before been portrayed.
