FIGHTING FOR SPACE Two Pilots and Their Historic Battle for Female Spaceflight

by | Read by Amy Shira Teitel

Biography & Memoir • 11.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Author Amy Shira Teitel narrates her portrait of women aviators Jackie Cochran and Jerrie Cobb. While the two women had significant achievements as airplane pilots, both dreamed of being the first American woman in space. While Teitel's delivery is strong overall, she could have varied her tone and pacing somewhat to better match the levels of excitement in her stories. In addition, her habit of using first names only in second references can make it difficult for listeners to discern whom she is referring to. This is especially true of minor figures. Aviation and space enthusiasts will easily look past these minor flaws. The work is a veritable Who's Who of post-1930s American aviation.
