|Price on sale||$7.95 (reduced from $12.99)|
Written by Ed Butts.
Published by Tundra Books, 2005.
|From a true-life Survivor Island tale to the women
who flew fighters and bombers for the Allies in World War II, Ed Butts invites
you to meet twelve women who dared to live their lives on a tightrope. She
Dared takes the reader to the Far North, where a single Native woman put an
end to a ruinous war. Theres Molly Brant, who stepped out of the shadow
of her famous brother Joseph to make her own mark, and Dr. James
Barry, a prominent army physician whose true identity remained a secret
until the day he died.
These are the stories of women who took up challenges that society felt could be met only by men: Mina Hubbards incredible journey across Labrador; Martha Blacks adventures in the Yukon; Sara Emma Edmondss perilous missions as a Yankee spy in the Civil War.
While some of these women achieved legitimate fame, others gained notoriety. Pearl Hart became a Wild West desperado. Cassie Chadwick fleeced bankers for a fortune in one of the most brazen con games ever played.
Famous or infamous, these women are sure to intrigue readers.
