Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In More than Petticoats: Remarkable North Carolina Women, author Scotti Kent introduces readers to fourteen extraordinary women from North Carolina's history. Alive during such momentous events as the Revolutionary War, the Civil War, and the beginning of the twentieth century, the women included in this book saw reformation all around them and realized that they too could promote change. They did not weaken in the face of challenge but met it head on. Their lasting contributions are chronicled here for readers in the beginning of the twenty-first century. Discover Emeline Jamison Pigott, a Confederate Spy; Mary Martin Sloop, a physician, community leader, and child welfare advocate in the hills of the Blue Ridge; Maggie Axe Wachacha, a healer, teacher, and Cherokee leader; and Cornelia Phillips Spencer, who helped liberate the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. By turning challenge into change, all fourteen women in this book accomplished something remarkable. Read about their triumphs in this collection of absorbing biographies.

Synopsis:
