This fascinating text brings to light the contributions of five women seldom, if ever, mentioned as more than passing characters in the rich pageant of American history.

These women are Pocahontas, Lucy Terry Prince, Mary Edwards Walker, Sarah Josepha Hale, and Victoria Claflin Woodhull.110 pages, 5.5x8.5, (1998), 2008, 5.5x8.5, paper, 110 pp, Softcover, Herit...
