This is a great book to share with young and old alike, especially during Women's History Month. I had no idea how much the bicycle had to do with women's liberation. The writing in this book was thorough, yet brief enough to keep your interest and the photographs and illustrations were interesting and well presented. I recommend it as a resource for schools, churches, and homeschoolers. It was a great book.
