Lorraine O'Donnell Doyle, daughter of Gladys O'Donnell, has written a marvelous and
truthful account about her aviation-loving family. Gladys finished second in the
Women's Transcontinental Air Derby of 1929, which included contestants Bobbi Trout,
Pancho Barnes and Amelia Earhart. But what started as a wonderful aviation dream for
her parents, Lloyd and Gladys O'Donnell, ended in the success of a wife
and the bitter envy of a husband. Doyle's book dares to investigate the lightness and
darkness of a family. It is presented with a sophisticated, nostalgic flair. Great photos abound.
You may purchase it as a gift, but you'll want a copy for yourself. The book is a great
addition to any aviation library.
