    Book details

This is an extensive, fully researched biography of Amy Johnson, Britain s most famous aviatrix. Unto the Skies takes readers from the early days of her childhood and adolescence in Hull, through to her estrangement from her family in London, to the point where her love of flying led to the fame she later, albeit reluctantly, gained after her epic 1930 Australia flight. The story of Amy s death is still surrounded by mystery, after she crashed into the Thames estuary and was drowned; her body was never recovered. Her story still serves as an inspiration to many, being Britain s first qualified woman ground engineer, despite being told she would never be a flier, and completing her world famous solo flight at the age of 26, before other setting other records. The story of her life will be widely enjoyed!

Review Text

  • By Rachael on 12 May 2017

    This biography of Amy Johnson captivated me from the first page and by the end I felt as if I was reading about a friend. The research the author has put into this book, is clear and makes for a much more imaginative read. Amy's passion for aviation and even how she came to be the first female pilot to fly solo from Britain to Australia is fascinating and interspersed with more personal details of her life it creates an inspiring story.
