A beautiful, gentle book about strong, peaceful women and the history they made.
In the old days, history books marked time by the wars that men fought. The United States began with the Revolutionary War. then there was the War of 1812, the Civil War, the Spanish-American War, the First World War, the Second World War, the Koren War, and the Vietnam War. But there are other ways to tell time. My mother does not believe that wars should be fought at all. She says HIStory should be HER story, too, and she tells stories about all the women in our family who made history by not fighting in wars."
Wonderful stories for young girls. A different view of braveness and heroism, beautifully illustrated.
