Harriet Quimby was the first American woman to receive a pilot's license, among other achievements including becoming the first woman to fly solo over the English Channel. Author and former CBS News correspondent Don Dahler shares the story of the Quimby's incredible, pioneering story to CBS News' Michelle Miller. In his new book, "Fearless: Harriet Quimby A Life without Limit," Dahler tells how a dirt-poor farm girl went on to become a globe-trotting journalist, history-making aviator, and international celebrity.
