5.0 out of 5 stars Must have for Amelia enthusiasts 17 Feb. 2017
By ND - Published on

Great way to get insight on who Amelia really was by reading her own writings. This is one of my favorites along with "For the Fun of It", and "Letters from Amelia".

I bought this book to get better acquainted with Earhart's prose style as well as her personal and professional history. I've found that it provides plenty of insights. As for the vendor, they delivered the book ahead of schedule, in perfect condition.
5.0 out of 5 stars Amelia 8 Nov. 2013
By Lynda Faith - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
What a tragic end for such a wonderful person! It's so neat to get to know her. She was so fanatic about the details of her flights and I particularly see what she sees from the air. Good read.

5.0 out of 5 stars "My Last Flight -- in Amelia's Own Words..." 13 Sept. 2007
By Russell A. Rohde MD - Published on
Format: Hardcover
"Last Flight", Amelia Earhart, Hartcourt, Brace & Co., N.Y. 1937 (1st Ed.), HC 229 pgs., 27 B/W Ilustr./photos. 5 1/2" x 6 1/8"

Written by Amelia, with book arranged by George P. Putnam, this is the original 1937 publication & it has many excellent B/W photographs (not seen elsewhere) of Amelia and her Lockheed Electra monoplane. It has 20 chapters, each episode chronicles AE's life as she embarked on a novel globe-encircling plane flight begun at Oakland, CA and takes us to her successful lift-off at Lae, New Guinea on July 2, 1937, accompanied by navigator Fred Noonan. With 2/3 of her mission accomplished & only 2,556 miles remaining, their plane vanishes.

This is one of three books authored by AE and certainly the most revealing of all. Unlike other books about AE, this one reveals much more of her personal life experiences, charm, expectations, and dreams -- the book defoliates a lot of the mystery and hearsay recited by others, albeit from her personal perspective and that of GPP, her publicist-husband.

The book provides details of her flight route and stop-overs in the US and across the seas to South America, Africa, India, Bangkok, Singapore, Bandoeng, Australia and New Guinea with notable B/W photographs at the stoppages and of her gracious receptions by named notables in foreign lands. I think we gain a keener & more sincere appreciation of her abilities as a aviatrix, adenturer, planner & journalist and we're not so mired down in Monday-morning quarterbacking of her skill limitations, so less wont to engrave negativity onto her career, something encountered, excessively (I think) in many later books on her life. That enveiglement: a world map, scale, compass & AE's stopping points imprinted inside the front & back covers of her book is extremely helpful!
