Harriet Quimby by Schiffer Publishing

Description

Fulfilled by our friends at Schiffer Publishing

One of the first women to fly, the fashionable Harriet Quimby (1875–1912) came of age in the fading years of a gilded era, determined to have more than the life of a farmer's wife. Beautiful, intelligent, and forever seeking the next adventure when her life ended tragically at age thirty-seven, this extraordinary pioneer had accomplished what most—women or men—only dream about. Here is the remarkable story of Quimby's groundbreaking work in aviation, photojournalism, fashion design, script writing, and advertising. As a celebrity journalist in New York, she was also a mouthpiece for women, minorities, and social justice issues. "I  think I shall do something someday," she once remarked. This recognition of her legacy is long overdue.[AuthorName]By (author) Leslie Kerr[/AuthorName][AuthorBio]Leslie Kerr has been a writer and editor for over twenty-five years and has led numerous writing workshops across the country and abroad. She is the owner of LKB Associates, an editorial consulting firm in Westport, Connecticut.
