Description
Amelia Earhart (1897-1937) captured the hearts of the entire nation after becoming the first woman to fly across the Atlantic Ocean in 1928. She was a record-setting aviator, but also a social worker, author, lecturer, businesswoman, educator, and tireless promoter of women's rights. Yet, over half a century after her mysterious disappearance, many questions remained unanswered. East to the Dawn finally sets the record straight, providing the most comprehensive account to date of Earhart's extraordinary life.

Based on ten years of research through archives, letters, and diaries, and on interviews with friends and relatives, this book includes intricate details about Earhart's career and her fateful last flight, with excerpts from letters written during the journey by her navigator Fred Noonan. The author also traces Earhart's personal life: her early years with her grandparents; her experiences as a nurse, premed student at Columbia University, and social worker, her famous marriage to publisher George Putnam; and her secret affair with Gene Vidal. This biography presents a revealing picture of Earhart in all her complexity, and is sure to be the last word on her incredible flying record.
