Audubon: Life and Art in the American Wilderness Audubon: Life and Art in the American Wilderness by Shirley Streshinsky
In 1803, an eighteen-year-old West Indies-born Frenchman arrived in New York City, fleeing Napoleon's conscription. His Name was John James Audubon, and his life's work would become inextricably entwined with the new world he so proudly adopted in his motto "America, my country." Dreamer, vagabond, romantic, and genius, Audubon was an archetype of the passionate and steadfast frontiersman.
Jacqueline Cochran
Jackie Cochran: An Autobiography by Jacqueline Cochran, Maryann B. Brinley
Inducted into the National Aviation Hall of Fame in 1972 and a member of the National Women's Hall of Fame, Jacqueline Cochran was a force to be reckoned with. She became a record breaker in air history as well as a business success. She established one of two speed records set in 1938, flying a converted P-35 racer. On Sept. 3, 1938, Cochran established a record time for women, crossing North America in 10 hr 12 min 55 sec in a plane similar to the P-35 Pursuit. In 1935 Cochran became the first woman to enter the Bendix Transcontinental Air Race and in 1938 the first woman to win it.

The Yearling The Yearling by Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings

Short Stories Short Stories by Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings
These stories are steeped in the locale of the Florida backwoods, yet the themes are universal, and although Rawlings was not a feminist, her female characters are feisty and do not suffer lightly indignities imposed by men (for example, in "Gal Young Un"). Most, originally published in the New Yorker, the Saturday Evening Post and Scribner's Magazine between 1928 & 1953 these stories are presented in order of publication.
