This book recounts Amelia Earhart’s flight aboard the Friendship as a passenger in 1928, becoming the first woman to cross the Atlantic Ocean by air. A few years later in 1932, Ms. Earhart would become the first woman to make a solo flight across the Atlantic. In 1937, in an attempt to make a flight around the world, Earhart’s plane disappeared, and she and her navigator, Fred Noonan, were never found.
