About the Author:

Mary Ellen Snodgrass has served as a humanities, English, and Latin teacher with more than 20 years of experience at the high school and university levels.

Review:

"Snodgrass's volume answers the need for primary sources and presents an avenue for quickly finding material that is missing from most high school and college textbooks. An excellent option for libraries supporting high school or undergraduate students studying American history." - Library Journal

"An excellent resource for college collections, American Women Speak is suitable for high school libraries, as well, and provides a wealth of quotable material for educators at those levels." - Booklist, Starred Review

"Well written and contains diverse women, topics, and works. . . . It is recommended for public and academic libraries, particularly at institutions with communications programs and rhetoric/composition programs." - ARBA
