Amelia Earhart developed a love of flying at a very young age. As she followed her dream and built a name in the field of aviation-breaking numerous records along the way-she inspired other women to soar to new heights.

With an introduction by astronaut pioneer Eileen Collins, Amelia Earhart: This Broad Oceanfocuses on Amelia's triumphant crossing of the Atlantic Ocean in 1928. Panel by panel, it offers a glimpse of her relentless ambition and tireless will to promote women's rights. Above all, it leaves us with a sense of her deep-rooted desire to touch the sky.
