Bernice Steadman was one of the 25 women invited, and one of the 13 to pass the early stenuous physical for space flight. But then she was only allowed to watch, not to participate as American men first flew into space. The book captures the life of Miss B, a flight instructor and racing pilot who helped connect the golden age of aviation to the entry of women into space. It speaks of adventure out of the 60s, sandwiching humor between technical and historical passages. It is about courage, friendship, and success.
