Notes: "Neta Snook Southern was one of the pioneers of aviation. Back in the days before World War I, when airplanes were covered with fabric and pilots were considered daredevils, Mrs. Southern was one of the first women in the air. ... in 1917 she took up a career in aviation, becoming a commercial pilot and a flight instructor. During the first World War, she worked for the British Air Ministry in Elmira, New York. After the war, she rebuilt a Canadian training plane and barnstormed the country. She also taught students to fly, carried passengers, and did aerial advertising. For two years she operated a commercial flying field in California."--Jacket.
"In these pages we learn what it was like to teach Amelia Earhart to fly, and how it felt to be associated with men like Glenn Curtiss, Donald Douglas, Eddie Stinson, Eddie Rickenbacker, the daring balloonist Major Thomas Baldwin, and many others."--Dust jacket flap.
