Product Description:

Publisher Description:

For over 50 years, Elizabeth Cady Stanton was one of the most influential leaders of the women's rights movement of the 1800s. In this book, abundant with interesting photographs and images, readers are given a glimpse of Stanton's public and personal life through her own writings. Her friendship with Susan B. Anthony, work for the women's rights convention of 1848, and connection with the antislavery movement are especially highlighted. Sidebars and fact boxes offer more about this period in US and world history.

Category Description for Eyewitness to History:

What makes these books not "just another biography series for young readers"? Photos! These books utilize photos as much as possible (instead of the more typical illustrations) and also incorporates lots of direct quotes. The end result is meeting and getting to know a historically famous person through his/her early life and public/personal challenges, trials, and victories. We rejoice to read of Thomas Jefferson's confession "I cannot live without books," but may be a little more concerned to know that he considered "a little rebellion (speaking of Shay's Rebellion) now and then a good thing. It's the medicine necessary for the sound health of government." This series will introduce young readers to noted public figures in a personal way: tracing through the major events in their lives, providing insight into their behind-the-scenes thoughts and opinions. 32 pgs, pb. ~ Janice
