Written as a travel guide to the landmarks and memorials dedicated to American women, this book will receive more frequent use as source of brief biographical information on hundreds of famous and obscure historical figures. It is arranged by geographic section of the country, and then by state, city, and personal name. Each entry is from one to four paragraphs long, concentrating on the accomplishments that prompted the creation of the landmark. At the end of each state listing are broad-ranging and up-to-date bibliographic notes, and a general bibliographic essay on women's studies concludes the book. This was obviously a labor of love for the author. Libraries large and small will find it a major ready-reference source on historic women in America. James Moffet, Baldwin P.L., Birmingham, Mich.
