Paul F. Lambert recounts the remarkable life of Pearl Carter Scott, child aviator, devoted mother, and revered Chickasaw elder. At twelve, she met Wiley Post, who was just beginning his historic aviation career, and who would inspire hers. She became a pilot at thirteen and retired from aviation at eighteen. As an adult, Scott devoted herself to serving the Chickasaw people, and became a revered tribal elder, and an inductee into the Oklahoma Aviation and Space Hall of Fame and the Chickasaw Nation Hall of Fame.
