Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 4-8-These two well-written volumes have interesting stories, well-documented facts, well-chosen photographs, and an easy and enjoyable writing style. Both women come across as bigger than life but human and approachable. Students will come to understand their struggles, commitment, and successes. Both titles are packed with useful information, and previous background is not necessary to understand the technical terminology. What stands out about these books is their unbiased glimpses into the characters and lives of two remarkable people-role models that are much needed for today's young women. Colorful covers, an open format, and well-placed, clear, color and black-and-white photographs will attract the intended audience.-Linda Wadleigh, Oconee County Middle School, Watkinsville, GA Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
