From School Library Journal:

ea. vol: 111p. illus. photogs. reprods. bibliog. chron. index. (American Women of Achievement Series). CIP. Chelsea House. 1988. PLB $16.95. Grade 6-10 What makes these biogra phies outstanding is that through the heavily illustrated double-column text, each author weaves the tapestry of the historical period from which these women emerged. The stories of Phillis Wheatley and Marian Anderson are also the stories of slavery and Ameri can racial prejudice. The texts have frequent quotes, adding immediacy and authenticity. Although the books vary slightly in quality of writing style (Hepburn's story is the most interest ing), all are consistent in objectivity and attention to important details and attempt to convey the essence of each woman. These books will help to fill a great need for clearly written, infor mative, and inspiring biographies for the middle school level. Phyllis Graves, Creekwood Middle School, Kingwood, Tex.
