Amy Johnson by Constance Babington Smith is regarded as the definitive account of the extraordinary and unconventional life of the trail-blazing aviatrix.

Amy Johnson became a household name after her solo flight to Australia in 1930 which thrust her, ill-prepared and exhausted, into the limelight and almost constant media attention for the rest of her short life. She was to die in mysterious circumstances in 1941 crashing into the sea off Herne Bay.

The book is a compelling and often surprising portrait of Amy Johnson's life and this new Daredevil Books edition includes forty photographs that convey the many twists and turns of her fascinating life.


Our specially designed hardback has been printed by the Queen's bookbinders, Blissetts of London, and features a dust jacket to protect the Colorado cloth bound cover. Printed in Royal size (234 x 156 mm) this lovely edition is 388 pages long and features over 40 photographs, many of which have been generously donated by Amy's surviving family.
