About the Author:

Drollene P. Brown is an Albert Whitman author.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 5-9 A lively and engrossing biography of the first woman to run for the U. S. Presidencyin 1884. Lockwood's life is developed chronologically, with a chapter each devoted to its major phases. There are several black-and-white illustrations: photographs, paintings, and copies of campaign literature. Brown concludes with an afterword on, among other things, her personal interest in Lockwood and an interesting and informative note on her research. The author has done a splendid job of bringing this almost-forgotten historical figure to life. The amount of detail provided and her vigorous writing style make the energy, persistence, and resilience of this fascinating woman leap right off the page. While almost completely avoiding fictionalizing and conjecture, she succeeds in making clear not only her subject's personality and achievements, but also the political and legal contexts in which she operated. For instance, Brown is able, in one paragraph, to explain the electoral college system. Americans will appreciate this glimpse into their own past; others will enjoy meeting an appealing character, an inspiring role model, and a major, if neglected, figure in the fields of law, human rights, international relations, aboriginal issues, politics, and education.
