Did you know that, as a child, Amelia Earhart built a roller coaster on top of her grandmother's barn roof, narrowly missed  hitting a horse and carriage while careening down an icy slope on her new sled and played football at a time when no  well mannered young lady did?

Share with the young Amelia her fascination at seeing her first airplane, the curiosity and courage that sent her exploring in a dark, deserted cave, and her determination to learn to fly no matter what. Cheer as Amelia rescues two neighbor boys from her angry dog and escapes from an angry deliveryman after releasing his horse from a painful neckrein. Her exhilaration at flying for the first time is contagious and will delight all that share the aviator's sense of adventure.  (Florrie Binford Kichler, publisher)
