The Hunt
For Amelia Earhart

America's Greatest Search
-- By Douglas Westfall --

A First Person Account of America's History:
The Sixteen Day Search for the Noted Aviatrix Amelia Earhart
And How She Disappeared.

"The book makes for fascinating reading."
-- Kate Kelly, The Huffington Post --

This story is seven decades old -- it's the story of the Hunt For Amelia Earhart. She disappeared in July of 1937, and the US sent 9 ships, 66 aircraft, and well over 3,000 Navy sailors, cadets, and newsmen to search well over a quarter-million square miles of the Pacific Ocean plus 24 islands, through torrential storms and gale force winds.
