Synopsis

SILVER MEDALIST FOR THE GENERAL NONFICTION FLORIDA BOOK AWARDWhat really happened to Amelia Earhart? After years of painstaking research and the careful compilation of information from numerous interviews, Pacific Islander folklore, and US and Japanese military documents, there may finally be an answer to this intriguing question! Author Dave Horner argues that Earhart ventured north of her intended destination in search of Jaluit Atoll, and newly discovered evidence supports his stunning conclusion.

A graduate of the University of Virginia and Rutgers University, Dave Horner had become the youngest bank president in Virginia by the age of thirty. He founded one of the first pro dive shops in the mid-Atlantic region and pioneered sport diving for treasure. His interest in sport diving led him to research, locate, and successfully salvage a sunken treasure ship. He is a frequent speaker at Amelia Earhart Society events and a consultant for others seeking hidden treasure. Horner alternates living in Vero Beach, Florida, and the Maryland Eastern Shore with his wife. Ronald T. Reuther, USAF lieutenant colonel, ret., saw possibilities and connections where others did not. While executive director for the San Francisco Zoo, he taught sign language to a baby gorilla named Koko. His passion for flight led him to found and head the Western Aerospace Museum, now known as the Oakland Aviation Museum. He was introduced to Horner while serving as the moderator of the Amelia Earhart Society. Reuther died in 2007 shortly after writing the foreword for this book.
