Amelia Earhart

Amelia Earhart

This Broad Ocean

“Women must try to do things as men have tried. When they fail, their failure must be but a challenge to others.” -Amelia Earhart

Amelia Earhart developed a love of flying at a very young age. What began as a simple joy became something much deeper–a commitment to open doors for all women. As Amelia built a name for herself in the field of aviation – breaking numerous records along the way – she inspired future trailblazers to soar to new heights.

With an introduction by astronaut pioneer Eileen Collins, Amelia Earhart: This Broad Ocean focuses on Amelia’s triumphant crossing of the Atlantic Ocean in 1928. Panel by panel, it offers a glimpse of her relentless ambition and tireless will to promote women’s rights. Above all, it leaves us with a sense of her deep-rooted desire to touch the sky.

PRAISE FOR CHARLOTTE BRONT BEFORE JANE EYRE

"[A] lively biography. . . . With sure-handed, irreverent illustrations, [Fawkes] captures life on the windswept moors and masters the art of Victorian side-eye. Her Charlotte Bront is as smart, brooding, and rebellious as Jane Eyre, and her volume offers an accessible introduction to and an elaboration on the Bront s' work."—Publishers Weekly
PRAISE FOR CHARLOTTE BRONT BEFORE JANE EYRE

"A biography that goes beyond static history, inspiring respect for Charlotte and encouraging writers and artists to defend their work through adversity."—Kirkus Reviews

PRAISE FOR SATCHEL PAIGE: STRIKING OUT JIM CROW
