Editorial Reviews

Subtitled, Lives of eight female players, directors, managers and activists of the eighteenth, nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The ladies include Laura Keene, who challenged tradition in 1958 by heading her own dramatic troupe (her career was ruined by Lincoln's assassination); Mrs. John Drew, a star at seven who toured until she was 76; Anna Cora Mowatt who eloped at 15 and went on the stage when her husband lost his fortune (she wrote a play, Fashion, that's still performed 140 years later). Paul's meditative essays consider Thoreau, John Muir, Aldo Leopold, Henry Beston, Loren Eiseley, Richard Nelson, and Barry Lopez. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
