Description


Fans of #1 New York Times bestselling author Cokie Roberts, also a celebrated journalist for ABC and NPR, will love this stunning nonfiction picture book, Ladies of Liberty, based on her acclaimed work for adults. Highlighting the female explorers, educators, and writers as well as political and social activists that shaped our nation's early history, this is the stunning follow-up to her children's book Founding Mothers.

Beautifully illustrated by Caldecott Honor-winning artist Diane Goode, Ladies of Liberty pays homage to a diverse selection of ten remarkable women who have shaped the United States, covering the period of 1776 to 1824. Drawing on personal correspondence and private journals, Cokie Roberts brings to life the extraordinary accomplishments of these women who created the framework for our current society, a generation of reformers and visionaries.

Roberts features a cast of courageous heroines that includes African American poet Lucy Terry Prince, Native American explorer Sacagawea, first lady Louisa Catherine Adams, Judith Sargent Murray, Isabella Graham, Martha Jefferson Randolph, Elizabeth Bayley Seton, Louise D'Avezac Livingston, Rebecca Gratz, and Elizabeth Kortright Monroe. This compelling book offers a rich timeline, biographies, and an author note, bringing these dynamic ladies to life
