The Flying Girl and Her Chum(1912)
(A book in the Flying Girl series)
A novel by Edith Van Dyne (L Frank Baum)
In this high-flying sequel to THE FLYING GIRL, a damaged airplane strands brave Orissa Kane and her best friend Sybil on a barren rock somewhere in the Pacific Ocean. The two teenage girls must use all their wits just to survive. Meanwhile, in the best Oz-book double-plot tradition, Orissa's friends form a search party to find the missing girls. Throw in a ragged band of ocean-going outlaws bent on mayhem, and you have one of L. Frank Baum's most exciting non-Oz adventure stories, The Flying Girl and Her Chum. Eric Shanower provides a new Foreword detailing Baum's writing process and the history of women in early aviation including the young female aviator Harriet Quimby who was likely a model for the Flying Girl!
