Summary
Rickman, a former journalist and newspaper editor, was compelled to write the biography of aviatrix Nancy Love after completing her last book, The Originals: The Women's Auxiliary Ferrying Squadron of World War II. Love was an aviation pioneer who recruited and led the first all-female air squadron in the U.S. Military, paving the way for future generations of women jet pilots. Rickman's account of Love and the birth of the WASP Ferry Pilot program is told with enthusiasm and drama, and will be of interest to any fan of aviation history and women's studies.
