Reviews

"With an informal writing style, this is an engaging title that will appeal to many readers. The use of newspapers accounts of the march helps bring this event into the 21st century. A fine chronicle of the early 20th-century United States and the tenacity of Rosalie Gardiner Jones."--School Library Journal

"Though the book is a perfect vehicle to get teen-agers interested in reading about history, the complexity and density of information Jack provides, as well as his facility with humor and dramatic tension, will also hook more mature readers."--Santa Fe New Mexican
