Ware writes that she wanted to rescue Amelia from the cult of her disappearance, to replace an impossibly romanticized, martyred enigma with a useful piece of history. Grown-up women of today, aviators, and others, should find this Earhart a more plausible and heartening forerunner. Amy E. Schwartz, Air & Space
Still Missing is a fascinating biography of one of the most intriguing women of modern history. In it, Susan Ware recovers the parts of Earhart's life that have been obscured by the emphasis on her disappearance. Setting her in her place and times, Ware speaks of the woman who set aviation records, who endlessly promoted the ability of women to enter any and all professions, who served as a dynamic role model because of her charm and spirit. Ware's portrait of Earhart is of a woman we all need to rediscover.
