Nancy Love
WASP Pilot

By Sarah Byrn Rickman

         

Nancy Love: WASP Pilot introduces one of the heroic woman pilots of World War II to Young Adult readers.

Nancy Harkness Love (1914-1976) earned her pilot's license at age 16 and worked as a test pilot and air racer in the 1930s. During World War II she convinced General William Tunner to set up a group of female pilots to ferry aircraft from factories to air bases. Her proposal was  approved as the Women's Auxiliary Ferrying Squadron (WAFS). Nancy commanded this unit and later all ferrying operations in the newly formed Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP). She was awarded the Air Medal and was appointed lieutenant colonel in the US Air Force Reserve in 1948.
 
This is Sarah Byrn Rickman’s ninth book about the WASP of WWII. It is her second book aimed at introducing young readers to the gutsy women who paved the way for today’s women military pilots.
Sarah also serves as editor of the WASP News, the official newsletter for the WASP Archives, located at the Texas Woman’s University Library, Denton, Texas.
