KIRKUS REVIEW

Ten soundly written biographical sketches of heroic to foresighted American women who have won firm places for themselves and their beneficiaries in our country's development. A semi-fictional telling enlivens their stories which have been set down chronologically in the book. Anne Hutchinson- early standard bearer for the freedom of religion; Abigail Adams Braintree's heroine who told her statesman husband to ""remember the ladies"" Dolly Madison, Narcissa Whitman, these are the personalities that light three of growing feminine recognition that eventually allowed for the work of such as Id Tarbell and Eleanor Roosevelt.
