By Ann Fears Crawford and Crystal Sasse Ragsdale

From ranchers to cattle queens, artists to historians, sports heroes to governors, Texas women have played an indelible part in the history of the Lone Star State. Historians Ann Fears Crawford and Crystal Sasse Ragsdale have collected a rich compendium of biographical stories that present the lives of 31 Texas women--their struggles, their experiences, and their accomplishments--that left a lasting mark on the state they loved. Among the women profiled are Jane Wilkinson Long, known as the "Mother of Texas," Governors Miriam "Ma" Ferguson and Ann Richards, Congresswoman Barbara Jordan, and Olympic athlete Babe Didrikson Zaharias. A wonderful book for young people and anyone interested in the women who shaped Texas. Grades 4 and up.
