Book Description: Here is an exciting parade of true stories about the women who have played an important part in the making of American history.

In these lively sketches, famous names spring to life. The reader will meet such great characters as Elizabeth Blackwell, first american woman doctor; Mary Lyon, the first American woman to found a college for girls; and Susan B. Anthony, who defied public opinion to seek suffrage for her sex.

In these pages, too, the young reader will discover many other stirring examples of courage and vision - from Pocahontas, the brave young Indian princess, to Helen Keller, the conqueror of darkness.

These are concise biographies. The author limits himself to the significant facts. The sketches, which read like the best of adventure stories, will lead youngsters to seek more detailed information in full length biographical accounts.

Great American Heroines will provide boys and girls with both excitement and lasting inspiration.
