Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Children's Literature
Victoria Woodhull was one heckuva fascinating woman even as a kid when she began "orating" on the street. Although she attended school only from age eight to eleven, she had a true photographic memory, read voraciously all her life, and became as well educated as any adult in her day. Skipping through her life shows you a poor child born in Ohio, in 1838, to unsuccessful parents. At age 14, she and her younger sister Tennessee supported the family by being spiritual mediums, a not uncommon livelihood in the mid 1800s. (A good medium was basically an intelligent listener with a natural bent for psychology). Victoria married Dr. Canning Woodhull when she was just sixteen, and soon learned that he was not only lazy but alcoholic as well. She must have realized she was basically on her own in life, and somewhere between the time of her marriage and age twenty-five she decided to be a person of major importance. She became an activist for women's rights, especially for the right to vote, and after the Civil War, when she and Tennessee had settled in St. Louis, she met Civil War veteran, Col. James Harvey Blood. Promptly she divorced Dr. Canning. Marriage to Blood let Victoria thrive, as he encouraged her advocacy of free education, equal rights for women, and birth control. In subsequent years, Victoria worked again as a medium, campaigned for women's rights, owned and managed a Wall Street investment firm (a first for a woman) with the backing of Cornelius Vanderbilt, entertained major figures of her day, owned a newspaper, and was listed on the presidential ballot with Frederick Douglass as her running mate for the Equal Rights Party in 1872. They lost, and after a disastrous financialrecession later that year, Victoria's fortunes plummeted. As she had many times before, Victoria reinvented her life and found success. Like a phoenix, she spent her life rising above one fiery disaster after another. 2000, Morgan Reynolds, Ages 12 up, $18.95. Reviewer: Joan Carris
