Vicki Leon did a wonderful job unearthing treasured tidbits of information about women long ago forgotten. The tales are told in easy to understand language, and are concise. Each tale is short so it was nice to spend a few minutes at a time reading it.

I always wondered what strong women in history were really like. You knew they had to be around to lead the way, but were rarely mentioned in our history books. This book helps fill in the gaps. It is a great gift for our daughters and young people who need to know that women have been a strong force from the beginning of time. Buy it for your favorite teacher or treat yourself to a chuckle.
