Line Break

In this nonfiction book, author Rebecca Siegel writes about the real history of women in aviation. She focuses on the mid-20th-century space race. Siegel describes how talented female pilots were repeatedly denied opportunities to explore the new frontier of space.

To Fly Among the Stars is an amazing experience for any science or space lover. The book taught me a lot about 1960s gender norms and the history of the space race.
