During WWII, more than a thousand American women aviators ferried planes across the U.S. from factories to military locations. Narrator Gabra Zackman employs an unpretentious voice that is suitable for this account of ordinary women who were committed to doing extraordinary things in their time. Zackman adds a touch of flair when describing Jacqueline Cochran, one of the two founders of the Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASPs); Cochran was blonde, flashy, and demanding. But her rival and eventual cofounder, Nancy Love, was beloved by the majority of WASPs, who could relate to her down-to-earth manner and considerate leadership. Zackman's narration--energetic but not showy--communicates respect for these women pioneers who quietly earned their silver wings and served their country.
