Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When Bessie Coleman was a child, she wanted to be in school — not in the cotton fields of Texas, helping her family earn money. She wanted to be somebody significant in the world. So Bessie did everything she could to learn under the most challenging of circumstances. At the end of every day in the fields she checked the foreman's numbers — made sure his math was correct. And this was just the beginning of a life of hard work and dedication that really paid off: Bessie became the first African-American to earn a pilot's license. She was andlt;Iandgt;somebody.andlt;/Iandgt;

Synopsis:

The life story of the first African American to earn a pilot's license is revealed. "A flight well-worth taking."--"Publishers Weekly," starred review. Full color.
