Description
Throughout history there have been women, endowed with curiosity and abundant spirit, who stepped out of their homes, cast off the shackles of expectation, and struck out for new territory. In this ode to bold, brash, and sometimes just plain dangerous women, Barbara Holland provides biographical sketches of Cleopatra and Calamity Jane, Mata Hari and Amelia Earhart, Lizzie Borden and Mother Jones, among many other female explorers, pirates, spies, renegades, and reformers.

"Deliciously ironic, reliably brainy, steadily informative a jubilant hop, skip and jump toward rectifying the omission of women from the historical record."Minneapolis Star Tribune
