Autobiography: Marilla Marks (Young) Ricker, 1840-1920, was born to a Free-Will Baptist mother and a freethinker father in New Durham NH. Educated at Colby Academy (now Colby-Sawyer College) in New London NH, she became a suffragist, philanthropist, lawyer, and freethinker, having at age 10 rejected her mother's church. Inscribed by the author to Claremont NH native "Ellen P. Sanders: from Marilla M Ricker: The bibles of the world are kept alive on Superstition; other literature on Merit: Yours Truly Marilla: December, 1917". She was the first woman accepted into the bar in NH, the first woman to run for governor (1910) there, the first woman to apply for a federal foreign ambassadorship post. She advocated for prisoners and the poor. Her run for governor was dismissed by the attorney general as she was not a registered voter (nor was any woman). Her campaign platform had included the vote for women and taxation of church property. Included herein, more than 3 pgs from Wikipedia about the author, plus a partial older news clipping. Very good.

Store Description

Hi, Folks ... Mom said, 'I need to downsize'. Moving to assisted living, what she couldn't take included 8,000-plus books & records. A decade later, my upcountry barn is bursting. Books multiply as others recycle priorities. I now have 30,000 or more books (not yet all online) looking for good homes, and my learning curve has been a roller coaster. I celebrate word-crafters, thought-tumblers, laughter ... the arts of communication at every turn. I preserve, protect, and share. I am also Hedgehog Publishing, 'Words & Pictures by & for Folks with Prickly Backs, Soft Bellies, & Small Brains'.
