Fearless Flyer – Ruth Law and Her Flying Machine
We learned about Ruth Law and how on November 19, 1916 she took to the sky to fly from Chicago to New York in one day. Something no one had ever done. Especially not a woman. Beautifully illustrated and wonderful book!
“When I was a little girl I used to dream of flying, not with terror ….. but with wonder and delight. I would be a swallow flying south, or an eagle swooping down from the clouds, and then, all of a sudden, I’d wake up, just a little girl ready to cry because she had no wings.”
