Discover the inspiring story of Amelia Earhart - the first woman to fly solo over the Atlantic Ocean - in this fascinating kids' biography. Amelia Earhart is one of the world's most famous aviators in the history of flight and a role model for women everywhere.

This biography book for kids ages 8-11 charts the major events of Amelia's life, including buying her first plane (a bright yellow bi-plane that she named The Canary), gaining her pilot's licence in 1923, becoming the first female air passenger to cross the Atlantic Ocean in 1928, and becoming the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic in 1932, earning her the nickname Queen of the Air. The story of a true feminist icon, DK Life Stories- Amelia Earhart is the gripping tale of a determined woman who broke the rules and followed her dreams skywards.
