Science Story Time- Fearless Flier


This month, Dr. Misty will be reading "Fearless Flier: Ruth Law and Her Flying Machine" by Heather Binks Lang.

Summary:Ruth Law thrilled spectators in the 1900s by performing the loop-the-loop and other daredevil tricks in her flying machine. But after years of flying in circles, Law was determined to do what no pilot had ever done: fly nonstop from Chicago to New York City in one day. On a windy November morning, she took off on a flight that experts predicted was doomed to fail. Her flying machine was outdated, and no woman could endure such a grueling cross-country trip. That’s what the experts said but they didn't know Ruth Law.
