9780759101319: Amelia Earhart's Shoes: Is the Mystery Solved?

Can modern science tell us what happened to Amelia Earhart? The International Group for Historic Aircraft Recovery (TIGHAR) has spent fifteen years searching for the famous lost pilot using everything from archival research and archaeological survey to side-scan sonar and the analysis of radio wave propagation. In this spellbinding book, four of TIGHAR's scholars offer tantalizing evidence that the First Lady of the Air and her navigator Fred Noonan landed on an uninhabited tropical island but perished before they could be rescued. Do they have Amelia's shoe? Parts of her airplane? Are her bones tucked away in a hospital in Fiji? Come join their fascinating expedition and examine the evidence for yourself! The new paperback edition brings the search up to the present, including tantalizing evidence of campfires and charred bones found on remote Nikumaroro.

Review:

You'll be enthralled as much by the telling as by the tale. (The Dallas Morning News)

The authors have taken one of the great mysteries of modern times, provided a story line that could only have been conceived by Steven Spielberg, and created a book that will keep you up until you turn the last page. (Greg Stemm, founder, Professional Shipwreck Explorers Association)

A rare camaraderie forged by sunburn, sea sickness, exhaustion, and a shared dedication against all odds and in defiance of all criticism. . . . TIGHAR has already gathered evidence that they are searching in the right place. . . . [They] have sifted meticulously through dirt, scoured murky lagoons, and dived the fringing reef. (Skin Diver Magazine)

While their judgements are tantalizing and plausible, the fun of the book is being in on the excitement of the discoveries and the scientific testing of the hypothesis. Written in a colloquial, good-humored style that takes itself seriously but is not above cracking a joke to make a point, this is a must for 'what happened to Amelia' fanatics, and also those who are interested in how science can be used to test the veracity of theories about historical mysteries. (Publishers Weekly)

There are competing theories about Earhart's disappearance, but in this engrossing description of the investigations, TIGHAR has produced one of the most cogent and plausible theories yet. This is a valuable and entertaining primer on the disappearance itself, and it just might hold the solution to one of aviation's greatest mysteries. (Mel D. Lane Library Journal)

Although we still do not know where we might find Amelia Earhart's lost plane, here is a compelling scientific argument for one place to look. (Dr. Robert D. Ballard, president, Institute for Exploration, and discoverer of the Titanic)

A light-hearted book written by serious, skilled people, unlike previous ponderous books on the subject. (Maui News)

No doubt fans of 'Unsolved Mysteries' and anything about the famous aviatrix's final flight will be intrigued by Amelia Earhart's Shoes: Is the Mystery Solved? Although the authors do not answer their title question definitively and continue their own search, they tell a good story about their adventures, as well as those of Earhart and Noonan, and they suggest that the duo landed on the island of Nikumaroro in the South Pacific, 'lived on the island for a while, and died.' (Kansas History: A Journal of the Central Plains)

If you're an archaeologist or a fan of archaeology, if you love a good mystery, if you want to know wht historic archaeological research is really like, or if you're a secret fan of Amelia Earhart, get your hands on this book. You will surely not be disappointed. (Archaeology.About.Com)

This book by Dr. King and the others is the most comprehensive treatment of its subject; for those who want to learn about Earhart's famous flight, it is the best thing currently available. Moreover, the book makes no claims based solely on speculation; everything reported is from actual experience and the recovery of physical evidence. Anyone who wants to study their mysterious final flight will have to read Amelia Earhart's Shoes. (The Journal Of Pacific Studies)
