Summary

'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.
