Synopsis: Profiles the pioneering photojournalist whose accomplishments included being the only foreign photographer in Moscow during the Nazi bombardment, being the first woman photographer accredited to the U.S. armed forces, and being the first to photograph the Allied entry to Buchenwald

Review: Art historian and photography critic Vicki Goldberg gives us a perceptive portrait of Margaret Bourke-White (1904-71), a woman who witnessed and interpreted many of the major events of the 1930-50s. As a child, Margaret White wanted to do "all the things women never do," and her nonconformist parents encouraged her. After a brief marriage at nineteen, Margaret combined her parents' surnames to re-christen herself Bourke-White, beginning a process of self-definition that is convincingly documented throughout the book. Margaret soon found the vehicle for her goals: photography. Single-minded hard work, an avid interest in the world, vigorous self-promotion, and a total lack of fear resulted in Margaret's evolution into one of the most famous and sought-after photographer-journalists of her day in an overwhelmingly male-dominated profession. Her photographs have become icons of this century: Fort Peck Dam on the first cover of Life magazine, flood victims during the Depression, Moscow under fire during World War II, survivors of Buchenwald concentration camp, Gandhi at his spinning wheel. In 1939, Margaret married writer Erskine Caldwell. Although the marriage was short-lived, it produced a collaboration of words and photographs comprising several books that chronicled the changes taking place in Russia, Europe, and the United States. For the last twenty years of her life, Margaret battled Parkinson's disease and the loneliness that increased isolation and inability to work imposed upon her. Yet she remained an optimist, writing her autobiography and living as full a life as possible with her characteristic passion and fearlessness. -- For great reviews of books for girls, check out Let's Hear It for the Girls: 375 Great Books for Readers 2-14. -- From 500 Great Books by Women; review by Lynne Auld
