Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Beverly Kobrin
Rebecca Stefoff's Women Pioneers and Lisa Yount's Twentieth Century Women Scientists (1996, Facts on File, Ages 11 up, $19.95, ISBN: 0-8160-3173-8) are prime examples of the "American Profiles" and "Global Profiles" series, respectively. Among the indomitable women who come alive in Ms. Stefoff's engrossing volume is Clara Brown. She never gave up on her search for the daughter sold at slave auction and found her after 47 years. Ms. Yount's scientists include Lise Meitner, who was first to realize that the cores of atoms could be split to release tremendous energy.
School Library Journal
Gr 6 Up-Nine stories of pioneer women and their courage, ingenuity, and triumph. Based on primary sources, the accounts are delivered in a narrative style that enhances readability without sacrificing detail or accuracy. A variety of figures are represented, from Rebecca Burlend, raised in England; to Clara Brown, born a slave in Virginia; to Polly Bemis, born in China. These real-life tales are sure to appeal to readers who enjoyed Brandon Marie Miller's Buffalo Gals (Lerner, 1995), but they make history palatable to even the most jaded students. Average-quality black-and-white reproductions and photographs break up the text.Rebecca O'Connell, Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh
