From the Author:

Clara Driscoll was amazing. With seeming ease, she produced a Broadway play, served embassy tea, and bulldogged steers. As Time magazine said in 1945, "She was big--even by Texas standards." I hope her story inspires girls to be both history recorders and creators.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

From Chapter 1: In 1898 I was vacationing in Spain when the Spanish-American War broke out. I was seventeen, and this was too interesting an opportunity for me to resist. I assumed a Spanish name, pretended to be a native, and remained six months to observe developments.
