Book Overview

Women have been doing amazing, daring, and dangerous things for years, but they're rarely mentioned in our history books as adventurers, daredevils, or rebels. This new compilation of brief biographies features women throughout history who have risked their lives for adventure--many of whom you may not know, but all of whom you'll WANT to know, such as:

  • Annie Edson Taylor, the first person who dared to go over Niagara Falls in a barrel
  • Valentina Tereshkova, the first woman who dared to fly in space
  • Helen Gibson, the first woman who dared to be a professional stunt person
  • And many more

This is the perfect read for anyone who wants to know what it means to explore, discover, play, climb, and fight like a girl

   Great book if you wants to teach girls about a Confederate “hero”
My daughters received this book for Christmas and I was horrified to find that the author and publishers believe that a Confederate spy is equal to all of the other great women of the Civil War. In "The Seven Years That Shook Me," Belle Boyd believed in the Confederate cause and used her slave to help her spy. I reached out to the publisher weeks ago and the website had no response. There are so many great historical women who I am disappointed that people still believe the confederate cause was justified, Rosa said.

   Praises a Confederate
I was really shocked and appalled that someone who had worked to maintain a system that brutalized people could be included as a heroic figure in this children's book, Garton said. Slavery was a crime, and I, too, am ignorant to the history of the forced labor, terrible living conditions, regular beatings and rape, shortened lives, and, most heartbreakingly, selling children away from their parents to be worked and exploited at yet another plantation.

   Confederate flags?!
What the hell is that? I don't understand the inclusion of this story and particularly don't understand the inclusion of 2 Confederate flags in her drawing, Tunick said.

   Not well known leaders
Probably a good book, but I did not recognize any of the women leaders in it. I would have liked to have seen the name of the leaders before I purchased so I didn't have to go through the return process. Going to return and order "Herstory" which is also about women leaders but more of the well known ones discussed in school and it shows pics of the actual women.

   Includes strong women who were on the wrong side of history
Only a handful of people have read the entire story. In the Civil War, Boyd was a spy for the Confederate Army. Since she supported slavery, I have been turned off and not picked it up again. I think I can tear that page out, too. If I had known that story was in there, I would not have bought it.

   Nice writing about a number of inspiring women through history
It will be perfect for inspiring young girls and letting them know they can be brave, strong, and courageous enough to stand up to what they believe in, Hart said. It goes to show women have done some amazing things, too.

   an awesome gift!
This was an awesome present for my sister and was delivered exactly when it was supposed to be. Great product and great service, said Dr. Julie D. Sullivan, director of product development at RAFT.

   Fascinating & inspirational book!
She loved it so much that she gave it to her mom for Christmas. She is a very strong reader, who also loves to learn new things when she reads, and she was very excited about the book, Mr. Dhaliwal said. She told me she is reading about one person a day, and has learned a lot of things — plus she was excited to see it was all about daring women! She said she was also telling her classmates about the women, whom she thought were very brave. I also enjoyed the fact that I got to review some of the selections, since they were so new to me. It's great to hear from people who have used it.

   Beautiful book with awesome illustrations
I bought this book as a Christmas present for a young relative. The interviewer, Barbara Comstock, started to read some of the women's stories. The book is in great condition, said Ragin. It is filled with wonderful illustrations and easy to read synapses of the depicted women, and if you or your family does not want to encourage reckless behaviour, I would recommend another book. Strong women are often the unsung heroes of the movement.

   Conderate spies aren't heroes
We have a two-year-old daughter that our night time ritual includes reading about heroic and influential women. This book was great, up until it praises the Confederate spy, Elizabeth Barrett. We don't fight for slavery, Lord Blackwood said.
