This book recreates the life-and-times of thirteen inspiring and independent women in fascinating, brief biographies. Meet Marguerite "Tante Blanche" Thibodeau Cyr, the "mother of Madawaska," whose bravery and kindness during one brutal winter saved her frontier settlement; botanist-artist Kate Furbish, who tramped Maine's wilderness, collecting, classifying, and painting all of its flowering plants; and Florence Nicolar Shay, a Penobscot basketmaker who demanded and succeeded in gaining rights for her people.
