Daring American Heroes of Flight!

Happy Memorial Day Everyone!

In Enslow's latest title, Daring American Heroes of Flight, Author Jennifer Reed profiles nine of these daring heroes: the Wright brothers, Bessie Coleman, Charles Lindbergh, Amelia Earhart, Benjamin O. Davis, Jr., Neil Armstrong, Sally Ride, and Eileen Collins.

There was a time when people were in a race to be first with a reliable and controllable way to fly. From crossing the Atlantic Ocean and landing on the Moon to overcoming gender and racial bias, there have been pilots who rose to these challenges, no matter the odds.
