Bicoastal babe

October 9, 2009 - Karin Elton
People know a lot about Laura Ingalls Wilder but may not know that on this date in 1930: “Laura Ingalls became the first woman to fly across the United States as she completed a nine-stop journey from Roosevelt Field, on New York’s Long Island, to Glendale, Calif.,” according to the AP Today in History.

I think that was pretty cool of her. She went from living in a dugout along the banks of Plum Creek, going to town in a wagon pulled by a horse, to being a pioneer by hopping on a plane and traveling across the country.

You go, girl!
