    This is the second book I have read from the Christian Heroes: Then & Now collection. I had never heard of Betty Greene, but what a story! Betty was the first female to fly over the Andes mountains, and she had this experience when working with MAF: Mission Aviation Fellowship. Betty dreamer of being able to fly as well as help others in the mission field, and that is just what she did with MAF before they ever had a single plane. This organization is still going strong.

    Betty Greene helped to found Missionary Aviation Fellowship (MAF), which helps missionaries in some of the most remote areas by flying supplies in and flying people in and out. This is a great story if you are looking for a female heroine to inspire your girls. Personally, I would read Cameron Townsend and Nate Saint, and possibly Rachel Saint, before reading this book. Betty Greene and MAF is really a tie in to all these other missionaries, and MAF really got their start with the help of Camero Betty Greene helped to found Missionary Aviation Fellowship (MAF), which helps missionaries in some of the most remote areas by flying supplies in and flying people in and out.

    This is the first Janet and Geoff Benge book I read and I loved it immensely and intensely but I cannot remember much about it as I read it years ago save these 3 tidbits: *SPOILERS* 1. Betty Greene was a American missionary to Ecuador in the 1950s and was a MAF Pilot, with her close colleagues being the likes of Jim Elliot, Ed McCully, Nate Saint, Pete Fleming, and Roger Youderian. Sadly, a few years later, in January 1956, she would lead the airplane rescue team that spotted the burned plane a This is the first Janet and Geoff Benge book I read and I loved it immensely and intensely but I cannot remember much about it as I read it years ago save these 3 tidbits: *SPOILERS* 1. Betty Greene was a American missionary to Ecuador in the 1950s and was a MAF Pilot, with her close colleagues being the likes of Jim Elliot, Ed McCully, Nate Saint, Pete Fleming, and Roger Youderian. Sadly, a few years later, in January 1956, she would lead the airplane rescue team that spotted the burned plane and drowned corpses of all 5 men in the days after their disappearance while in Auca tribal territory, breaking down in regretful sobs when the mens’ bodies were found to have been mutilated during their martyrdom. 2. BG was a former WASP in WW2 3. BG remained a unmarried missionary in Ecuador until the circa 1970s ? when she died of untreated cancer. Rating: 8 stars Recommend: for teens who want to have role models beyond the latest overpaid pop singer or actress

    Betty Greene was a real servant to Christian missionaries and her life was exciting (as every life is when it's lived for Jesus). The book was great, but I guess that I thought that the story would have a lot more action in the air than it did.

    The story of Betty Greene is a joy for me to read. It is nice to know that God uses all talents, all people. And someone who can fly a plane can be used mightily by Him.

    I read this biography for the Challies challenge. I found the writing style a little dry, but the factual information was interesting enough to keep me going. I'm at least somewhat familiar with many of the missionaries covered in the YWAM biographies, but I chose Ms. Greene because I had never heard of her. Talk about using one's gifts and talents to honor Christ! I did enjoy hearing about Betty Greene's work in the early days of missionary pilots.

It is obvious from the book that her work helped to advance God's kingdom, and that she also had some amazing adventures. I did wish as a reader that I could have gotten a little more detail because parts of this book felt a little bit like just a dry synopsis of where she went. While this book was a somewhat average read for me, I do think I will still use it later on in homeschooling little ones.

    Great book about Missionary Aviation Fellowship and the lady who helped start it. It is amazing the extent to which this private group has been a lifeline and instrument of missionaries worldwide.

Ever sice her childhood,she wanted to be the first lady pilot. The book started out very boring but it got more interesting towards the end. It starts out with her first practice ``Is she ready for her first practice?`` Chapter one ,Target practice. It was difficult to understand . The book goes back to her childhood and then back to her normal life

    i’m going to he honest, i didn’t enjoy this book but i rated it higher because it wasn’t the author’s fault. the book itself was fine but i had to read it for a report and i detest public speaking. i’m really not into nonfiction (like at all) and that plus the fact that i HAD to read it were the only reasons why i didn’t enjoy reading it. i actually started it sometime mid-january but kept putting it off because i didn’t want to do the report. this book definitely wasn’t for me but i don’t want i’m going to he honest, i didn’t enjoy this book but i rated it higher because it wasn’t the author’s fault. the book itself was fine but i had to read it for a report and i detest public speaking. i’m really not into nonfiction (like at all) and that plus the fact that i HAD to read it were the only reasons why i didn’t enjoy reading it. i actually started it sometime mid-january but kept putting it off because i didn’t want to do the report. this book definitely wasn’t for me but i don’t want to lower its rating just because i wasn’t the target demographic.

    A bit dry, a lot about she went here and then there. Not as connected to religious content as many of the others in the series which I found disappointing given the purpose of the series. Liked for learning about women pilots in WWII. See Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein for fictional account of female pilots in WWII.

    About a wonderful believer. Betty Greene followed God and he gave her the desire of her heart which was to fly for Him. She was the first woman to do many things in an airplane. This book was a blessing to read!
