Amazing Girls of Arizona
From The Diary of Anne Frank to Anne of Green Gables, young women have loved to read stories about real girls who faced incredible challenges and shared indelible truths about the human spirit. Jan Cleere has compiled a wonderful collection of such stories for a wide range of readers, from ten-year-old girls to older readers fascinated by women's history.
Meet Laurette Lovell, born in 1869 with a severe leg deformity, who started on her path to become a renowned pottery artist and painter at age 13. Edith Bass, born in 1896, began wrangling mules before the age of nine, leading pack strings up and down the dangerous paths into the Grand Canyon. These two young women, and nine others, are profiled magnificently alongside historic photographs.
Today's readers love bold adventures. They'll never forget these stories of real girls who conquered the West in their own style, spending most or all of their childhood in Arizona. 200 pages.
