Publisher Comments:

More than Petticoats: Remarkable Georgia Women examines the determination of thirteen resourceful women, all of whom rebelled against the strict social codes of the turn-of-the-twentieth-century American South. These women and their far-reaching influence span the geographical, social, and ethnic diversity of Georgia. Setting their own standards and following their passions, they continue to inspire new generations with their achievements.

Meet Rebecca Latimer Felton, the first woman to sit as a U.S. senator; Juliette Gordon Low, the resilient founder of the Girl Scouts; Sarah Freeman Clarke, a painter who dared to pursue art and literature as a career; Gertrude "Ma" Rainey, the "Mother of the Blues," whose voice transcended race and class; and Margaret Mitchell, author of the enduring tale of survival, Gone with the Wind.

Pursuing her individual interests and desires, each of these women was, above all, true to herself. Discover their exceptional courage in this collection of brief and absorbing biographies.
