Product Details

Praise

★ ”(A) magnificent, long overdue flight from history straight into the present.” —Booklist, starred review

★ ”Lang builds suspense with comparisons and questions…. Back matter includes photographs and further biographical details. Colón’s harmonious palette is comprised, appropriately, of blues, yellows, and greens; his signature etched lines provide additional energy…. this title underscores the pilot’s achievement and conveys her exhilaration.” —School Library Journal, starred review 

“Lang’s portrait commemorates the centennial of Ruth Law’s record-breaking flight from Chicago to New York….Effectively employing short, staccato phrases, Lang creates a riveting, “you are there” narrative…. Colón’s rich compositions…use a primary palette of gold and charcoal brown, with layers of turquoise for water and sky….A well-crafted tribute to a fascinating aviation pioneer.” —Kirkus Reviews 

“Colón’s etched artwork, glowing in autumnal yellows, shows Law flying above the Midwestern landscape… Lang keeps the focus on Law’s determination… a visceral reminder of the daring of [Lang’s] feat.” —Publishers Weekly
