From the Back Cover:

Moving portraits of twelve courageous women who made Vermont what it is today More than Petticoats: Remarkable Vermont Women profiles the lives of twelve of the state's most important historical figures―women from across Vermont, from many different backgrounds and from various walks of life. With enduring strength and compassion, these remarkable women broke through social, cultural, or political barriers to make contributions to society that still resonate today. Read about:
· Lucy Terry Prince, the legendary African American poet, pioneer, and public speaker who made an arduous journey on horseback to plead for an end to her family's harassment
· Emma Willard, who endured harsh winters, financial fiascos, and meddlesome men as one of America's first advocates of women's education
· Abby Maria Hemenway, who defied the incredulity of Middlebury College scholars to compile the history of every town in the state
· Shirley Jackson, the celebrated writer who dared to expose the dark underside of New England small town life
Each of these women demonstrated an independence of spirit that is as inspiring now as it was then. Read about their extraordinary lives in this captivating collection of biographies.

About the Author:

Deborah Pickman Clifford has lived in Vermont since 1966. A graduate of Radcliffe College, she has published three biographies of nineteenth-century American women: Julia Ward Howe, Lydia Maria Child, and the Vermont historian, Abby Maria Hemenway. Back in the 1980s she served as the first woman president of both the Vermont Historical Society and the Henry Sheldon Museum in Middlebury. She has also written and lectured widely on the history of Vermont women. Most recently, she and her husband, Nicholas, are the joint authors of The Troubled Roar of the Waters: Vermont in Flood and Recovery, 1927-1931, published by the University Press of New England in 2007. Residents of New Haven, a small town near Middlebury, the Cliffords have four daughters and six grandchildren.
