    1. Three biographical essays that gave both different facets and different slants. Turns out Earhart was a fascinating woman. The photo section illustrates clearly how hard she worked to maintain her celebrity status so that she could continue to raise money to fly. Recommended to fans of history, feminism, and photojournalism.
