The mystery of Amelia Earhart's disappearance lends a note of intrigue to her life of adventure. Earhart grew up in Kansas, won her pilot's wings by 1924, and flew across the Atlantic Ocean in 1928. Kris Faulkner reads this biography carefully, emphasizing quotations and journal entries. The narrative, which is appropriate for a range of ages and interests, tells of Earhart's life and dreams, particularly her passion to be unfettered by society. Faulkner's soft, dreamy voice adds flavor to Earhart's personality but doesn't reflect her ambition and drive. The story of Earhart's life ends all too soon, when she disappears over the Pacific Ocean in 1937. M.B.K. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 06/ JAN 07]
