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 author Cokie Roberts' children's book Founding Mothers: Remembering the Ladies. 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, Roberts brings to life the extraordinary accomplishments of these women who created the framework for our current society. Roberts features a cast of courageous heroines that includes African American poet Lucy Terry Prince, Native American explorer Sacagawea, and First Lady Louisa Catherine Adams. This compelling book offers a rich timeline, biographies, and an author's note, bringing these dynamic ladies to life!
