Mary Walker Wears The Pants: The True Story of the Doctor, Reformer, and Civil War Hero

Mary Edwards Walker was unconventional for her time: She was one of the first women doctors in the country, she was a suffragist, and she wore pants! And when the Civil War struck, she took to the battlefields in a modified Union uniform as a commissioned doctor. For her service she became the only woman ever to earn the Medal of Honor.

This beautifully illustrated picture book biography tells the story of a remarkable woman who challenged traditional roles and lived life on her own terms

"Most children won’t recognize the name Mary Walker, but they should...readers will be impressed by the story of Mary’s bravery and her constancy in thinking for herself despite mockery and ridicule. The author’s note adds context and information, and the illustration of an elderly pant-suited Mary speaking to a crowd is a fitting conclusion." -- Ilene Cooper, Booklist
