Some say things can’t be done. Others do them, proving that with the right combination of bravado and talent, there’s no telling what you can accomplish. Nicknamed “Lady Lindy,” Amelia Earhart was not only the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic. She held women’s speed, and distance records and then earned her place as the first woman to receive the Distinguished Flying Cross. As a nurse during World War I, Earhart developed an early concern for her fellow man that helped her champion human rights around the world. Her memorable accomplishments in the air moved her to pen three best-selling books.
