Item Description...
From her childhood years to her mysterious disappearance, this biography for middle readers provides an insightful telling of the life and accomplishments of this famous aviator. Original.

Publishers Description
From the distinguished historian of Revolutionary-era America and author of the acclaimed American Scripture comes this fresh and surprising account of a pivotal moment in American history--the ratification of the Constitution.

- A singularly important debate: When the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia adjourned in the late summer of 1787, the delegates returned to their states to report on the new Constitution, which had to be ratified by specially elected conventions in at least nine states. Maier recounts the dramatic events of the ensuing debate in homes, taverns, and convention halls, drawing generously on the speeches and letters of founding fathers, both familiar and forgotten, on all sides.

- Perfect match of author and subject: Pauline Maier specializes in bringing early American history to vivid life. Her most recent book, American Scripture, was an Editor's Choice of The New York Times Book Review and a finalist in general nonfiction for the National Book Critics Circle award.

- A new perspective: This is the first narrative history in decades of the ratification debate, with all its significance, and it draws on new scholarship about the ratification process. In Maier's skillful hands, this fascinating yet often-overlooked episode in the nation's history comes to life as never before.

Praise for Pauline Maier's American Scripture

Reviews - What do our customers think?
too many adult issues for the super young  Jun 19, 2007
I read several other books from this series aloud to my five year old but had to stop halfway through this one. Amelia had a bit of a difficult life with her father's alcoholism, parent's divorce, occasional poverty and ultimate loss at sea. There are other allusions to people dying in plane crashes. The books about Neal Armstrong, John Glenn and the Wright Brothers from this series were more appropriate for a five year old.
Amelia Earhart-Young Aviator  Sep 5, 2000
Amelia Earhart was a very courageous young pilot, and she helped inspire young women to fly. In the book, Amelia Earhart: Young Aviator, by Beatrice Gormley, in the Childhood of Famous Americans series, the author describes Amelia Earhart as extraordinarily brave. This book tells almost everything a person would want to know about Amelia Earhart.

Amelia flew her plane until she wanted to retire. Before she retired, though, she wanted to make one last record-breaking flight. She planned to fly around the entire world, making stops only to refuel her plane. Near one of the islands she was supposed to land at, she mysteriously disappeared into the fog. No one knows what happened to her. We don't even know where she lies. We just know of her great achievements.
