BORN TO FLY The First Women's Air Race Across America

by | Read by Kim Mai Guest

Children Ages 10+ • 6.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Narrator Kim Mai Guest chronicles the lives of some of the top women aviators of the 1920s and their race across America. Using dramatic pauses to capture her audience, Guest weaves the stories of some of the greats, including Louise Thedan, Ruth Elder, Marvel Crosson, Amelia Earhart, Bobbi Trout, Florence Barnes, and many others, from their very beginnings in flight to their participation in The Women's Air Derby of 1929. The dynamic tone that Guest creates reflects the determination of these daring aviators. Listeners will rally around this adventurous group of aerial pioneers who pushed to not only break new ground for women, but also for all pilots during the early age of aviation.
