Publisher Description

In the spirit of the bestseller Fly Girls comes the definitive and compelling true story of Harriet Quimby, the first American woman to receive a pilot's license. In the early twentieth century, headlines declared that "the era of women has dawned." Against this changing historical backdrop, Harriet Quimby's extraordinary life stands out as the embodiment of this tumultuous, exciting era—when flight was measured in minutes, not miles. This untold piece of feminist history unveils Quimby's incredible story: rising from humble beginnings as a dirt-poor farm girl to become a globe-trotting journalist, history-making aviator, and international celebrity. With her tragic death in 1912 at the age of thirty-seven, her story faded, with her many accomplishments—the first woman to fly solo over the English Channel among them—overshadowed by major events, including the sinking of the Titanic. With black and white illustrations throughout, Fearless is the definitive biography of the first licensed female American pilot: one of the most inspiring hidden figures of history.

A fascinating and consequential look at a pioneering turn-of-the-20th-century woman who lived life on her own terms. Fearless is indeed the right title for Harriet Quimby. Dahler's telling of Quimby's life story and validation of her as a multi-spectrum pioneer is welcome research.

— Dorothy S. Cochrane, Curator, General Aviation/Aeronautics Department National Air and Space Museum,  


  • A tale of adventure, courage and defiance, Fearless evokes the drama of the pioneering age of flight in dangerous detail, while providing a pacy and engaging tribute to the heroism of the first woman who dared to rise so high above her given lot more in life.

    — Clare Mulley, author of The Spy Who Loved
