Amelia Earhart Biographies

Amelia, the big-budget Amelia Earhart biopic starring Hillary Swank, opened in theaters this weekend. If sitting in a darkened theater for two hours watching soft-focus hagiography and Richard Gere doesn't do it for you, try going direct to the source material. The movie is based on two biographies of the iconoclastic aviatrix: East to the Dawn ($11, paperback) by Susan Butler and The Sound of Wings ($12, paperback) by Mary Lovell. No, they still don't really know what happened to her, but if you like real-life adventure yarns, then they're worth a read.
