Synopsis:
Uppity Women of the New World presents more than 200 New World pioneers and adventurers. Spanning the early 1500's to the mid-1800's, Leon follows the women who braved new worlds. Documenting not only the women who journeyed to distant lands but the indigenous women who met them there, she gives us the inside scoop on these brave and daring dames.

Review:
With guts, great-heartedness, and a certain grim determination, the extraordinary women profiled in Uppity Women of the New World rose to many occasions and grandly surpassed them, despite the hardships in their time. These underrepresented women of history lived in an age when the term "global" first became a word and tenaciously carved out an existence that had not previously been available to them.

Covering the first centuries of colonization of the Americas, New Zealand, and Australia, Uppity Women of the New World profiles 220 adventurous women and reflects a time when they ran businesses, owned land, handled and hustled money, fought for their respective countries and beliefs, and dallied in exploration.
