Summary, etc.:
A riveting biography of Betty Skelton, aviation and auto racing pioneer.--In the 1930s, most girls were happy playing with dolls, but Betty Skelton liked playing with airplanes. When she was young there weren't many women flying airplanes or racing cars, but she was always ready to take on a challenge. She rode motorcycles, raced cars, jumped out of planes, and flew jets, helicopters, gliders, and blimps. By the time she was an adult, Betty was known in the press as the 'First Lady of Firsts!'
