Biographer Susan Wels shares secrets of Amelia Earhart: The Thrill of It with Mr. Media!
She was the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean and the first person to fly solo across the Pacific.

Amelia Earhart: The Thrill of It, by Susan Wels, is the first premium-quality illustrated biography to cover all facets of the icon’s life, featuring never-before-seen photographs, artifacts, letters, documents, and maps. It includes fascinating, newly revealed details about Amelia’s life and brings the story of her disappearance up-to-date with the latest information about the search for her remains in the Pacific Ocean.
Above all, Amelia Earhart: The Thrill of It vividly captures the essence of Amelia Earhart and her unorthodox, unflinching zeal for living life. Its publication coincides with the major motion film, Amelia, starring Hilary Swank, Richard Gere, and Ewan McGregor.
