The Lost History of the Lady Aeronauts

From have-a-go Georgians to emancipated Edwardians, the lady aeronauts were actresses, writers, heiresses, scientists, engineers, explorers, showgirls and suffragettes. These unsung trailblazers for female freedom enjoyed lives shot through with sheer courage and joie de vivre. Yet they were all but forgotten. Hold on tight for a white-knuckle balloon ride through their remarkable real life stories Praise for Sharon Wright! - "Sharon Wright tells a fabulous tale, and has uncovered some terrific stories of long forgotten heroines of the air. Some stories are comic, many are tragic, many are a bit of both, and she tells it brilliantly." Bristol Post "A simply brilliant history that rescues from undeserved obscurity a roster of pioneering women in the very beginning of the age of aviation an inherently fascinating and impressively informative read from cover to cover." Midwest Book Review "You couldn’t want for a better antidote to pinkness than these tales of girls and women unleashing their pluck and inventiveness in the unregulated age of balloonomania This is history at its most satisfying." Damesnet "You don't need to be interested in ballooning or anything to enjoy this book - it is just a thoroughly entertaining read from a really good writer." Amazon review "History has never been so much fun!" What’sHerName podcast
