The unique and independent American woman: adventurer... pioneer... poet... mother... educator... artist... freedom fighter. A History of Women's Achievement in America examines the 400-year history of American women's inspiring accomplishments and victories.

Without the American woman's pioneering fortitude, the early colonies at Jamestown and Plymouth Plantation, would not have survived. From then on, millions of American pioneer women would push the frontier ever forward. Destined to play an essential role in the shaping of the United States; American women forged an identity unlike any other in the world. That identity found a voice as they created great literature and science.
