Fly Girls

How Five Daring Women Defied All Odds and Made Aviation History

Keith O'Brien

Take to the skies with Fly Girls, a New York Times Bestseller that tells the story of five remarkable women who dared to fly during a time when airplane racing was both popular and dangerous. Facing prejudice and ridicule, these women banded together to fight for their chance to race and make history. Follow the journeys of Florence Klingensmith, Ruth Elder, Amelia Earhart, Ruth Nichols, and Louise Thaden as they push past societal expectations and prove that they are just as skilled as their male counterparts. One of them ultimately triumphs in the toughest air race of them all.
