Adult Books , Young Adult Books / October 2, 2015

During the 1800s, daring and courageous girls across America left their unique mark on history. Milly Cooper galloped 9 miles through hostile Indian Territory to summon help when Fort Cooper was under attack. Belle Boyd risked her life spying for the Rebels during the Civil War. Kate Shelly, when she was 15, crawled across a nearly washed-out railroad bridge during a ferocious thunderstorm to warn the next train. Lucille Mulhall, age 14, outperformed cowboys to become the World’s First Famous Cowgirl. These are just a few of the inspiring true stories inside Hometown Heroines-American Girls who faced danger and adversity and made a difference in their world. MY REVIEW: This is a great way to introduce Young Adults to Family History. It, also, is a tribute to girls and women in past history who have had a positive impact in society.

The Book is divided into three sections: Creative Endeavors, War Efforts, & Brave and Daring Acts. From very subtle changes – such as when eleven-year-old Grace Bedwell Billings…

First, Timothy is attacked on a nearby private island, and then the body of an unidentified stranger is found and the puzzle deepens.
