The Flying Girl

(1911)
(A book in the Flying Girl series)
A novel by

 
From the author of The Wizard of Oz comes a high-flying adventure featuring intrepid girl aviator Orissa Kane. Like Dorothy Gale in The Wizard of Oz, Orissa is intelligent, self-reliant and always persevering. Circumstances force young Orissa Kane into the air in her brother s innovative new airplane. But a deadly foe is intent on sending her crashing back to earth. Soar to new heights with the Flying Girl as she braves countless dangers to achieve worldwide acclaim.

Reilly & Britton published The Flying Girl, the first of two related Baum novels in 1911, under the pseudonym, Edith Van Dyne.
Perhaps influenced by his mother-in-law, prominent feminist and suffragette, Matilda Joslyn Gage, Baum created an adventure story about Orissa Kane, a young girl who becomes a pilot after her inventor brother's accident prevents him from proving the worth of his "flying machine."
