From Booklist: Gr. 4-6. Focusing on the 1848 Women's Rights Convention in Seneca Falls, New York, this book offers an evenhanded account of that event. Interwoven is the life story of Elizabeth Cady Stanton and descriptions of other key participants including Lucretia Mott and Frederick Douglass. Johnston also gives readers a sense of the convention's ties, which stretched backward in time to the Declaration of Independence and forward to the passage of the Nineteenth Amendment. Johnston shows respect for young readers by sorting out fact from supposition and, in the introductory note, acknowledging the difficulties of writing history from incomplete and somewhat unreliable sources. Following a chronology of the women's rights movement though 1920, there are source notes for the many quotations in the text. A good resource for students of women's history. Carolyn Phelan
