Fly High! The Story of Bessie Coleman This picture book biography of Bessie Coleman, suitable for younger readers, tells of her determination to be somebody and make something of her life. It tells how these personal qualities led her to achieving her ambition of travelling to France to attend flying school, and her subsequent fame as the first African-American to gain a pilot's licence. The format of short blocks of simple text alongside detailed full-page colour illustrations makes this an ideal introduction to an inspiring heroine.
