From Harbour Grace, Newfoundland, in 1932, Amelia Earhart sets off across the Atlantic Ocean, not knowing when or where she will land. Burleigh’s vivid text brings to life the story of the first crossing of the Atlantic by a female pilot. Laura Hamilton narrates with precision. Her leisurely pace leaves time to savor the enormity of Earhart’s undertaking, Burleigh’s rich text, and illustrator Wendell Minor’s breathtaking paintings. Hamilton uses extended pauses to portend moments that test Earhart’s mettle—a breaking storm, a broken altimeter, iced wings, and a gas leak. Sound effects of the weather and the airplane enliven the story. An afterword and back matter provide additional information about Earhart’s life.
