Harriet Quimby by Leslie Kerr

This book about the amazing Harriet Quimby was a joy to read.  Harriet was the first American woman to obtain her driver's licence and her pilot's licence and the first woman to fly across the Channel, as well as being an intrepid investigative journalist who travelled all over the world.  She was also beautiful and fashionable. She even designed an attractive plum jumpsuit with a hood to wear when flying!

This interesting book by Leslie Kerr would be an inspiring present for a teenage girl who wants to take on the world!
