A biography of the film actress known for her political activism during the Vietnam War and her more recent physical fitness programs.
School Library JournalGr 4-6-- An excellent biography of a woman who is an actress, an activist, an entrepreneur, and an American original. Fonda's world comes vividly to life as Shorto recounts her childhood, her career, and her personal life up to her romance with Ted Turner. He also relates her strong beliefs and deep involvement in controversial political and environmental issues, appropriately and smoothly setting this distinctive woman's life against the backdrop of tumultous times. The book is adequately illustrated with black-and-white photographs and has a helpful index. For young readers who can't get enough biographies or for those needing information for school reports, Shorto's book is a first-rate choice. --April L. Judge, Thousand Oaks Library, CA
