Rear jacket notes: "I've got stories I know I must tell because some of them nobody knows but me..." Adela Rogers St. Johns knows their stories because in nearly every case she knew the women themselves. As a top-ranking journalist she met face to face almost all the great women of her time. She knows what happened to Amelia Earhart. She saw her off o that last, fatal flight, and Amelia's last words provided the crucial clue. She was one of Judy Garland's few confidantes on the MGM lot when the great star's career began to crumble. She knew Margaret Mitchell before Gone With the Wind made her a celebrity. She met and talked with the remarkable Mother Cabrini -- who was to become America's first Saint. She spoke intimately with Bess Truman -- the quiet and resolute woman who was also a great First Lady. From Hollywood in its heyday, to the New York of Damon Runyon, to the circles of power in Washington, Adela Rogers St. Johns takes us on a journey of discovery -- showing us at every turn the extraordinary women who in often unexpected ways achieved the quality of greatness.
