Books Info:

Women Daredevils free pdf A colorful nonfiction picture book detailing the lives of some of the most daring women in history! Annie Edson Taylor went over Niagara Falls in a barrel. Mabel Stark wrestled with tigers. Sonora Webster Carver plummeted forty feet on horseback into a tank of water. These and the eleven other women profiled in this book performed between 1880 and 1929, when females were expected to stay home and raise families, not entertain crowds with acts of derring-do. Their bravado, equal to that of any male thrill-seeker, made them inspiring at a time when women were testing the waters of equality and freedom. Julie Cummins s conversational text and Cheryl Harness s posterlike illustrations bring a colorful era in history to life."
