“This collective biography introduces significant women in aviation, with chapters spotlighting Harriet Quimby, Bessie Coleman, Amelia Earhart, Beryl Markham, Anne Morrow Lindbergh, and Jackie Cochran. The final chapter surveys the role of women in aviation after World War II and focuses on some pivotal figures within the framework of a more general discussion. Illustrations, including many black-and-white photographs and a few maps, appear throughout the book. A glossary and bibliography are appended. This well-written volume provides a solid overview of the subject as well as intriguing portrayals of individual pilots.”
