Amelia Earhart was a pioneer pilot and was known as the best aviator of her time. She was a daring, skillful, and courageous woman who broke flight records of speed and distance. One of her greatest achievements was in 1932, when she became the first female pilot to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean. She succeeded in a time when people believed that piloting was only for men, but Amelia proved that female pilots were just as capable and courageous. In all of her pursuits, Amelia worked hard to promote the rights of girls and women. Earhart always encouraged women to take charge of their own lives, and never to be discouraged by the doubts of others.

Amelia Earhart (1897-1937) captured the hearts of America after becoming the first woman to fly across the Atlantic in 1928. Nine years later, her disappearance on an around-the-world flight brought her extraordinary life to an abrupt and mysterious end. Based on a decade of archival research through Earhart's letters, journals, and diaries, and drawing on interviews with the aviator's friends and relatives, East to the Dawn provides the most authoritative and richly textured account of both Earhart's record-setting aviation career and her personal life: her early years with her grandparents, her experiences as a nurse and social worker, her famous marriage to publisher George Putnam, and her secret affair with Gene Vidal, head of the Bureau of Air Commerce. As the Los Angeles Times raved, East to the Dawn is a "fully realized portrait of a truly remarkable woman."
