I have been reading this book as promised and find it quite interesting; however, it is apparently self-published because there are any number of misspellings and typographical errors throughout the book. In addition, sometimes the grammar is difficult to follow which causes me to have to re-read the sentence in order to get it right.
Included in the book are some very interesting photographs of historical significance, and I find the story both engaging and interesting. For any young woman seeking aviation as a career I think this book would go a long way to sharpen their interest. Polly Ross met some interesting folks along the way, and had a passion for flying which started when general aviation first took hold in the world. Among the people she met were Amelia Earhart, shown on the right preparing for her last flight.
Her travels and experiences make for interesting reading, and her life was certainly filled with events and people who were the movers and shakers in the aviation community. The writing style has a certain innocence and charm to it, and is certainly well worth the effort.
As soon as I finish reading the book I will complete my review here on the blog.
Until next time keep your wings straight and level Hersch!
"Courage is the price that Life exacts for granting peace,
The soul that knows it not
Knows no release from little things:
Knows not the livid loneliness of fear,
Nor mountain heights where bitter joy can hear
The sound of wings.
How can life grant us boon of living,
compensate for dull gray ugliness and pregnant hage,
Unless we dare the soul's dominion?
Each time we make a choice,
we pay with courage to behold the resistless day,
and count it fair."
COURAGE, a poem by Amelia Earhart
