Aloha Wanderwell, the dashing subject of the new biography Aloha Wanderwell: The Border-Smashing, Record-Setting Life of the World's Youngest Explorer, is back in the media spotlight.
In 1922, the teenage adventurer set out to become the first woman to drive around the world. She was photographed in front of the Eiffel Tower, parked on the back of the Sphinx, firing mortars in China, and smiling at a tickertape parade in Detroit. By the age of 25, she had become a pilot, a film star, an ambassador for world peace, and the centrepiece of one of the biggest unsolved murder mysteries in California history.
