Lost Star: The Search for Amelia Earhart

Front Cover
W. W. Norton & Company, 1995 - Biography & Autobiography - 206 pages
This fascinating and revealing book is based on ten years of research during which Randall Brink brought suits against the government, interviewed key witnesses willing to talk for the first time, and made forays into the equatorial islands of the Pacific. He uncovered documents that provide strong new evidence about the circumstances of Earhart's last flight, and has used his background as a pilot to reinterpret photos and technical data that have been misunderstood until now. Meticulously pieced together is the shocking truth: the story of the Roosevelt administration's plan to turn Earhart's last flight into a mission in espionage, her capture by the Japanese, and her likely survival as a prisoner of war.
