In 1995 Pearl Carter Scott was inducted into both the Oklahoma Aviation and Space Hall of Fame and the Chickasaw Nation Hall of Fame for her feats as the United States’ youngest pilot.
A native of Marlow, Oklahoma, Pearl completed her first solo flight at the age of thirteen, after learning to fly from famed aviator Wiley Post. She continued to work as a stunt pilot until eighteen, when she retired to focus on her family.
This new collector’s edition of the biography Never Give Up! The Life of Pearl Carter Scott offers readers additional photos and memorabilia from the Chickasaw aviatrix, highlighting her love of family, friends, and her Native American heritage. The comprehensive biography follows Pearl from early childhood to her piloting days, through the hard times of the Great Depression, and into her later years as a Chickasaw legislator and Hall of Fame inductee.
