Amelia Earhart: The Thrill of It

by

Amelia Earhart: The Thrill of It Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

She was the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean and the first person to fly solo across the Pacific. But Amelia Earhart was also a photographer, poet, hospital worker, truck hauler, fashion designer, social worker, and student of chemistry, physics, and medicine—before she vanished mysteriously in her airplane over the Pacific Ocean in July 1937.

Amelia Earhart: The Thrill of It is the first premium-quality illustrated biography to cover all facets of the icons life, featuring never-before-seen photographs, artifacts, letters, documents, and maps. It will include fascinating newly-revealed details about Amelias life and bring the story of her disappearance up-to-date with the latest information about the search for her remains in the Pacific Ocean. Above all, Amelia Earhart: The Thrill of It vividly captures the essence of Amelia Earhart and her unorthodox, unflinching zeal for living life.

Amelia: The Thrill of It will publish to coincide with the major motion film, Amelia, starring Hilary Swank, Richard Gere, and Ewan McGregor.

Synopsis:

Published to coincide with the major motion picture, "Amelia," starring Hilary Swank, Richard Gere, and Ewan McGregor, this comprehensive biography covers all facets of Earhart's life, featuring never-before-seen photographs, artifacts, letters, documents, and maps.
