She Dared by Ed Butts
Book DescriptionFrom 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. There s 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 Hubbard s incredible journey across Labrador; Martha Black s adventures in the Yukon; Sara Emma Edmonds s 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, the women in Ed Butt s fascinating book are sure to intrigue readers."
