I really loved the timeline at the bottom of the pages. It adds something special to be able to see what was going on in history at that time. There is also a separate text box along with each bio, showcasing one of their major accomplishments.
The biographies give a synopsis of the woman’s childhood, the obstacles in her way, her rise to fame, and her major contributions to American history, along with a short statement about her death. It’s a well-rounded and well-organized outline of the lives of these important ladies.
However, there were four biographies that I was not happy to see in this book. No doubt, these women were influential, but I think it was a bad influence that damaged the American nation. These women are praised as having fought for “equal rights” for various groups, but they trampled on the rights of others and ultimately harmed the people they were trying to help.
Maybe I’ll just tear out those pages, and enjoy the rest of the book.
I really loved reading the biographies of Helen Keller, Sacagawea, Abigail Adams, Harriet Tubman, Clara Barton, Nellie Bly, Amelia Earhart, Rosa Parks, Coretta Scott King, and Frances Willard.
