[a bit of wear to lower extremities and top of spine, one-time owner's mostly-erased (but still readable) name and address on ffep; jacket shows just a little wear at spine ends, slight age-toning]. (pen and ink drawings) "Dramatic stories," for juvenile readers, of "ten women who left their stamp on America [and] whose personal stature adds to our heritage." They are: Anne Hutchinson, Abigail Adams, Dolly Madison, Narcissa Whitman, Julia Ward Howe, Susan B. Anthony, Dorothea Lynde Dix, Mary Lyon, Ida M. Tarbell, and Eleanor Roosevelt. This was a companion/follow-up to the same husband-wife author-illustrator team's book "Ten Brave Men: Makers of the American Way," published two years earlier. James Daugherty, an accomplished modernist painter, muralist, and magazine illustrator, was also one of America's foremost book illustrators/authors, with a total of 103 books to his credit, eight of which were written by Sonia.
