Description

" Pancho " Barnes was a force of nature, a woman who lived a big, messy, colourful, unconventional life. She ran through three fortunes, four husbands, and countless lovers. She outflew Amelia Earhart, outsmarted Howard Hughes, outdrank the Mexican Army, and outmanoeuvered the U.S. government.

 

( ... ) She was a barnstormer, a racer, a cross - country flier, and a Hollywood stunt pilot. She was, for a time, " the fastest woman on earth ", flying the fastest civilian airplane in the world.

 

( ... ) In The Happy Bottom Riding Club, the author presents a portrait, both authoritative and affectionate, of a woman who didn't play by women's rules, a woman of large appetites - emotional, financial, and sexual who called herself " the greatest conversation piece that ever existed ".
