Published by Steinkis editions, “Amélia – Première dame du ciel” (Amelia – First Lady of the Sky) recounts the amazing life of Amelia Earhart, this woman with numerous accomplishments, in a captivating first-person narrative.

A pioneer of civil aviation, she constantly pushed her limits and accumulated records: the first woman to cross the Atlantic Ocean by plane, and then a few years later, the first woman to do so flying solo. She was also the first woman to reach the unprecedented altitude of 14,000 feet. Owing to her increasing fame, Amelia Earhart became the emblem of a new femininity from the early 1930s.

From her first flight to her disappearance in 1937, the author Arnü West has succeeded in shedding light on this figure who led an incredible life, worthy of a novel.
