Daring American Heroes of Flight: Nine Brave Fliers (Great Scientists and Famous Inventors) (Library Binding)
There was a time when people were in a race to be first with a reliable and controllable way to fly. Once there, many more frontiers were left to conquer. From crossing the Atlantic Ocean and landing on the Moon to overcoming gender and racial bias, there have been pilots who rose to these challenges, no matter the odds. Jennifer Reed profiles nine of these daring heroes: the Wright brothers, Bessie Coleman, Charles Lindbergh, Amelia Earhart, Benjamin O. Davis, Jr., Neil Armstrong, Sally Ride, and Eileen Collins.
