Read full description of the books:



This is a fantastic recounting of the first woman to successfully fly around the world! in March 1964 Jerrie Mock, an Ohio 'housewife' (according to her own description) sets off in a single engine Cessna 180 and completes the world record without really meaning to (29 days) - she really just wanted to do the flight, but sponsors and the media made it into an event. Jerrie tells of her husband, who is constantly phoning or sending telegrams to her at each stop to keep moving, not worry too much about weather, and forgo sleep and rest in order to stay ahead of another woman who just happened to be trying for the record at the same time.

What I found amazing was the lack of navigation devices and the primitive ones she used. But nevertheless, she successfully navigates to most of the planned airports and works out problems, mechanical issues, and the worst stumbling block - red tape - at each destination.

She really just wanted to stop and see the sights in each country.

I was amazed at the length of some of the long legs of the trip - Hawaii to California 17.5 hours and Bermuda to Azores 13 hours - all this with flying day after day and often into the night or starting in the middle of the night!

I finally found and bought the book at the Air and Space Museum, as I couldn't find it at the library, so if anyone wants to borrow it, let me know. It's a wonderful story! What an amazing pilot and person!
