Email this review


Sure to be a best seller, over night. The glamorous figure of the famous woman flier, made more romantic by her disappearance into the unknown, appeals to everyone's imagination, perhaps even more so than if she had returned to deliver her completed manuscript to her puhlishers. In this volume, the fragments of record of preparation, hopes, ideals and actual step by step incidents are brought together into a thoroughtly interesting and readable form. Through the almost bare bones statements of fact one gets much of the spirit and character of the flier, her simplicity, enthusiasm, single-kindedness, gallantry and philosophy of life -- and death. Not a great book, but a book that has a vital quality which makes it worth while.
