"An intimate portrait of Amelia Earhart."--Cover
"'Letters from Amelia' began quietly with the discovery of four neglected cardboard cartons in an attic in Berkeley, California. Inside were rare photographs and more than one hundred revealing letters from the legendary pilot to her beloved mother. The first was a four-year-old's thank-you note. The last, three short lines, was written just prior to her final 1937 flight, when she vanished into a Pacific mist of conjecture."--Publisher's description
