Publisher Comments:

Moving portraits of sixteen independent women who helped make North Carolina what it is today
 
More Than Petticoats: Remarkable North Carolina Women profiles the lives of sixteen of the states most important historical figures—women from across North Carolina, from many different backgrounds, and from various walks of life. With enduring strength and compassion, these remarkable women broke through social, cultural, or political barriers to make contributions to society that still have an impact today.

Mary Hooks “Polly” Slocumb—heroine of the American Revolution

Emeline Jamison Pigott—spy for the Confederacy

Each of these women demonstrated an independence of spirit that is as inspiring now as it was then. Read about their extraordinary lives in this captivating collection of biographies.
