Title: The Flying Girl and Her Chum
Authors: Baum, Lyman Frank
Keywords: novel;adventure;women;feminism
Issue Date: 2016
Abstract: In the book, Baum pursued an innovative blending of genres to create a feminist adventure melodrama. In the sequel, instrument trouble in Steve's new hydroplane forces Orissa and her friend and passenger Sybil to set down on a remote island. (Baum would structure a similar story, of two girls adventuring, in his final Oz book, Glinda of Oz, later in the decade.). Baum's publisher Sumner C. Britton had the author tone down the book, telling him by letter, "You have made the story too thrilling..." for a (supposedly) female author and her fans.
