Mabel Boll was a young, wealthy widow when she hitched her star to Charles Levine’s wagon, determined to be the first woman across the Atlantic, Boll gave a pilot a concussion, destroyed a marriage, ran around the globe, and tossed her hat in the ring for the spot Amelia Earhart ultimately got. She could find her name somewhere in the New York Times each and every day. In a word, she was determined. She was also Earhart’s direct competitor, and was waiting to take off 90 miles away from Earhart in New Foundland. They shared the same weather reports...except for one.
