Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Beverly Kobrin
Julia Morgan's (1872-1957) grit and determination shine throughout Ginger Wadsworth's engrossing biography, from architect Morgan's childhood through her fast-paced career, with detailed attention to San Simeon, the most famous of her many Hearst projects. Carefully researched, Ms. Wadsworth's book spotlights the publicity-shy, small-in-stature woman whose more than 700 buildings and private residences greatly influence the look of the San Francisco Bay area. Black-and-white and color photographs illustrate the volume.
School Library Journal
Gr 7-9-- Because Morgan preferred to let her work speak for her, the first substantial biography of her ( Julia Morgan, Architect Abbeville Pr, 1988 by Sara Holmes Boutelle) wasn't written until 30 years after her death. Thus, it may be somewhat remarkable--and unfortunate--that two biographies for young readers so similar in content have been published in the same year. Either would be valuable but few libraries will need both. Wadsworth capably traces Morgan's unprecedented accomplishments, emphasizing her professional life a bit more than Cary James does in Julia Morgan (Chelsea House, 1990). There is some duplication of the black-and-white illustrations, but in Wadsworth's book, the photographs are cropped more closely and the reproduction is better. Several full-color photographs, which more adequately reflect the splendor of William Randolph Hearst's San Simeon, are also included. Those interested in further reading will find a mixed assortment of adult and juvenile books, including Boutelle's extensive study and several general books on architecture. A list of selected buildings designed by Morgan, many of which still stand, is appended. --Jeanette Larson, Mesquite Public Library, TX
