Item description for Sisters in Strength: American Women Who Made a Difference by Yona Zeldis McDonough...

A highly-respected mother-daughter team honors eleven outstanding American women who have shaped history.

"I must admit I personally measure success in terms of the contributions an individual makes to her or his fellow human beings."
-Margaret Mead

Eleven American heroines come alive in these accessible biographies illustrated with vibrant paintings. While some crusaders, like Eleanor Roosevelt and Amelia Earhart, were widely recognized during their time, others, like Emily Dickinson, were more celebrated after death. But no matter how these courageous women achieved their goals, they triumphed over adversity, made huge sacrifices, and held fast to their beliefs.

Told with graceful simplicity, these marvelous stories of passion, wisdom, and unyielding fortitude will encourage a new generation of readers to find role models in the pages of history.

Those included are: Pocahontas, Harriet Tubman, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Susan B. Anthony, Emily Dickinson, Clara Barton, Mary Cassatt, Helen Keller, Eleanor Roosevelt, Amelia Earhart, and Margaret Mead.
