High, Wide, and Frightened High, Wide, and Frightened
This is the autobiography of one of America's greatest women pilots--some would say "the" greatest. She earned her pilot's certificate in 1927 (her license is signed by Wilbur Wright). Within the year, she had broken the women's world record for altitude and endurance. In 1929 she won the first Women's Air Derby, a trans-continental race. Over the next several years, Thaden continued to set records and win awards until 1938 when she retired to spend more time with her family and write these memoirs.

The Happy Bottom Riding Club : The Life and Times of Pancho Barnes The Happy Bottom Riding Club
The Life and Times of Pancho Barnes
In the 1920s, she began stunt flying for Hollywood, no mean feat considering that in 1929 only 34 of the 4,690 licensed pilots in the U.S. were women and none but Barnes did such work. She tested planes for Lockheed; wrote scripts for director Erich von Stroheim; worked with Howard Hughes on Hell's Angels, his multimillion-dollar flying epic; and founded the Association of Motion Picture Pilots. In 1929, she broke the women's speed record; six years later, she established the Women's Air Reserve, organized along military lines for aid in disasters.
