Booklist - 12/15/2014 Each of the new titles in the Eyewitness to History series spotlights a notable figure of nineteenth- and twentieth-century America. Despite the titles, these are not autobiographies but biographies that make excellent use of the many quotes from their subjects and, sometimes, their contemporaries speaking about them. A typical two-page section looks at a particular time, event, or issue in the person’s life and includes at least one quote in the main text or a related feature. Illustrated with well-chosen archival photos, these slender books pack in a surprising amount of relevant information about the people profiled and the social context of their times. Elizabeth Cady Stanton shows how her treatment at an antislavery convention in 1840 led to Stanton’s lifelong work for women’s rights and women’s suffrage. A concise, readable, and informative series of biographies for young people. - Copyright 2014 Booklist.
