Summary
Between the world wars, no sport was more popular, or more dangerous, than airplane racing. The male pilots were hailed as dashing heroes who stared death in the face; female pilots were more often ridiculed than praised. This audiobook recounts how five women banded together to break that glass ceiling as they fought for the chance to race against the men, and how in 1936 one of them would triumph in the toughest race of all
