Susan Butler discusses East to the Dawn : The Life of Amelia Earhart.

Amelia Earhart's legacy has loomed large since her Lockheed Electra disappeared in 1938 and she has since emerged as one of the true heroines of the twentieth century. Now, Susan Butler offers the most comprehensive account to date of Earhart's remarkable life. From her childhood and her family's great financial hardships, to her successes as a social worker and aviation entrepreneur, to the unique relationship with her husband, the notorious publishing magnate George Palmer Putnam, readers experience Amelia in all her permutations: as fashion plate, as lecturer, as educator, and, of course, as flier. Butler also dispels much of the myth and speculation that has attached itself to Earhart's disappearance, offering in its place a less romantic but ultimately tragic scenario of a great pilot who died at sea. Ten years in the making, and using many newly available documents, East to the Dawn will prove the definitive life of Amelia Earhart for an entire new generation. —from the publisher's website (timspalding)… (more)
