100 Places in the USA Every Woman Should Go is a lively and highly subjective collection of places that will educate, illuminate, entertain, challenge, or otherwise appeal to women of all kinds. From historic (such as the Women's Rights National Historic Park) to kitschy (SPAM museum), these places and activities provide a wide-angle view of all that makes America, America.

This book is extraordinary, and while it DOES focus on travel (maybe this is why I love it so much?), it is a Mary Poppins bag of interesting things, waiting to be unpacked. It is, at once, a travel guide, a talk with a very funny best friend, a history class with your favorite professor, and inspiration to read, learn, and explore more.
