High, Wide and Frightened (Paperback)
Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
High, Wide and Frightened, first published in 1938, is pioneering aviator Louise Thaden's account of her adventures in the early days of flying. Thaden (1905-1979) earned her pilot's certificate in 1928 and would go on to win numerous long-distance air-races, and set numerous records for high-elevation and long-endurance flights. This paperback edition includes the chapter entitled "Noble Experiment," (omitted from later reissues of the book), which describes Thaden's vision on the use of women in combat. In the final chapter of the book, Thaden describes her friendship with Amelia Earhart, who disappeared in 1937 over the Pacific Ocean.
