HISTORIC GIRLS: Stories of girls who have influenced the history of their times. By E. S. Brooks. Profusely illustrated $2 00
In these progressive days when so much energy and discussion are devoted to what is termed equality and the rights of women, it is well to remember that there have been in the distant past women, and girls even, who by their actions and endeavors proved themselves the equals of the men of their time in valor, shrewdness, and ability.
This volume seeks to tell for the girls and boys of to-day the stories of some of their sisters of the long ago—girls who by eminent position or valiant deeds became historic even before they had passed the charming season of girlhood.
Their stories are fruitful of varying lessons; for some of these historic girls were wilful as well as courageous, and mischievous as well as tender-hearted.
