Baker & Taylor
The search for Amelia Earhart and Fred Noonan is detailed here, presenting fascinating evidence gathered over the past sixty years, from bones in a Fiji hospital to airplane parts found on a deserted island.

In this spellbinding book, these scholars offer tantalizing evidence that the First Lady of the Air and her copilot Fred Noonan landed on a deserted tropical island but perished before they could be rescued.

Book News
The International Group for Historic Aircraft Recovery, or TIGHAR, here reports, in a bouncy, breezy style, the results of its 15-year intensive search for the location of Amelia Earhart and her plane, both lost in 1937. The four authors are scientists: an archaeologist, a geophysicist, a forensic anthropologist, and an engineer specializing in remote sensing technology. They combined their expertise to pinpoint the spot where they believe Earhart crashed and tell the elaborate story of what they believe happened to her remains. Annotation c.
