Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 5–8—Told chronologically, this biography takes readers through the valiant woman's life: her family, early years as a teacher and employee of the United States Patent Office, work on battlefields, and as founder and director of the Red Cross. Barton is placed in historical context, and key concepts, such as the causes of the Civil War, the struggle for women's suffrage, and the importance of the Geneva Convention, are explained. Compact in form, the text is complemented by full-color and archival photographs and reproductions on every spread. Boxed text defines select vocabulary and sidebars highlight key historical figures and organizations. An extensive list of works cited and a useful index are appended. An excellent resource for reports that will also appeal to fans of biography.—Ragan O'Malley, Saint Ann's School, Brooklyn, NY
