MY BOOK

The Crop Duster's Daughter

Born, Mary Leota Mae Smith-Burks in December of 1918, the first part of this story chronicles the life and adventures of my mother’s obstacles while pioneering careers for women
in aviation, especially crop dusting. The last half of the book tells of how my mom’s teachings and her leading by example, influenced my life for the losses I encountered in my adult years.
