KIRKUS REVIEW

An appreciative biography of America's first business woman. The famous Vegetable Compound was a family venture, so this is a family portrait as well. Born in 1819, a Quaker of lively intelligence, she started marketing her homemade botanicals following her husband's bankruptcy. The new type of testimonial advertising contributed to business growth. This is quite a yarn, and has a surprise ending, as modern research sustains the claims made for this Compound.
