This wonderfully illustrated book concentrates on Earhart’s 1932 solo flight from Newfoundland to Ireland. It tells a story focused upon the flight’s trials: a sudden storm, ice buildup on the plane’s wings, a precipitous plunge toward the Atlantic’s frothing surface, and a cracked exhaust pipe. Has internet sources, a bibliography, and a column of Earhart quotes.
