Grade 7 Up-- A book that imparts a sense of the accomplishments of early American women and documents the life of one of the best educated and most radical individuals of her day. Cady Stanton's traditional yet startlingly unique life foreshadows the progress and problems of the early women's movement and points to the challenges for the 20th century. The presentation is superb, relying on original sources and written in a style that is both accessible to young readers and sophisticated enough to do justice to its subject matter. The text is supplemented by archival photographs and reproductions of Cady Stanton and her family that capture the character of the woman and her times. A list of further reading and a satisfactory index are appended. --Ruth K. MacDonald, Purdue University Calumet, Hammond, IN
