Women have been doing amazing, daring, and dangerous things for years, yet they're rarely mentioned in our history books as adventurers. This new compilation of short biographies features women throughout history who have risked their lives for adventure - some of whom you may know, many of whom you may not know, but all of whom you should know. Along the lines of Women in Science and Rad American Women, WOMEN WHO DARED is the first in a series of highly illustrated biography compilations perfect for classrooms and gifting to children of all ages. Included are 52 short biographies (one for each week of the year!) featuring women such as: Annie Edson Taylor, the first person who dared to go over Niagara Falls in a barrel Valentina Tereshkova, the first woman who dared to fly in spaceEugenie Clark, who dared to think of sharks as intelligent beings Helen Gibson, the first woman who dared to be a professional stunt person Each spread will feature an illustration and bio for our adventurers. Back matter contains a bibliography.
