    Girl Scouting shaped my life. My parents enrolled all of their children in Scouting in the 40s and 50s. It gave us skills, friends, activities and confidence. My own children have been in Scouting. I attended a G.S Round Up. Hurray for Julliete Gordon Low and my many leaders. With the cultural upheaval of the 1960s, Scouting had different challenges. But they have survived. I saw the author on CSpan BookTV last night. What a story she told. Remember? "I have something in my pocket, it belongs across my face... ...it's a great big Brownie smile."

    I am enjoying reading this biography of our founder, Juliette Gordon Low! It does not read as a novel because it is a biography and it states the facts and the stories about Juliette and her life. I have had the opportunity to meet the author recently and she was interesting to listen to and that we need more books about Juliette. Juliette needs to be int he history books where she belongs alongside other women who were visionaries of their time!!

    I didn't love this book (a memoir would have been better, but I don't believe Gordon Low ever wrote one), but it's clearly well-researched. When I was a Brownie my parents took my siblings and I to visit Juliette Gordon Low's birthplace in Savannah. It was beautiful and I loved it even then. She's a fascinating woman.

    So what didn't I like about the book? The facts were just the facts and stated as such. The author could have written this in a narrative format and made "Daisy" come alive in the pages. She doesn't.

    I liked that photographs were included.
