Between the world wars, no sport was more popular, or more dangerous, than airplane racing. The pilots themselves 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 the original glass ceiling. They fought for the chance to race against the men, and in 1936, one of them would triumph in the toughest race of all.
