A useful compendium of women's history, Kennedy's book covers a variety of female accomplishments. The 13 subjects range from author Sarah Orne Jewett, explorer Josephine Peary, and politician Margaret Chase Smith to a botanist, reformer, clairvoyant, basket maker, nun, lighthouse keeper, and sportswoman. The writing is rich in data without jeopardizing the upbeat tone. A thorough bibliography for each entry offers the researcher additional avenues of information in print and electronic sources. A four-page index links Maine women to the Underground Railroad, Shakers, Penobscot Indians, suffrage, and the Audubon Society. Mary Ellen Snodgrass, Hickory, NC
