In 1927 , a 21-year-old ignored the fact that she was a girl and threw herself into helping birth American aviation, a new industry that even men feared. Against all odds — lack of money; a broken family; a father who was a compulsive gambler; the looming depression — she did not consider herself a victim of circumstances. She brushed aside mainstream thought, bobbed her hair, donned men’s clothes and took to the skies. The public admiringly looked up as Bobbi Trout broke one aviation record after another. She reached for the American Dream at a time when so many Americans doubted it would ever exist again.
