The New York Public Library Amazing Women in American History
Beginning with Native American "clan mothers" of pre-colonial times and extending to today's trailblazers, this question-and-answer book chronicles the lives and contributions of extraordinary American women. Along with chapters on the suffrage movement and the struggle for equal rights, author Sue Heinemann offers a look at women during the Revolutionary War, the fight against slavery, the settling of America's western frontier, and the Great Depression and World War II--all related in the series' signature easy-to-read style.
