Publisher Comments:

Not all governments have been run by men. Lives of Extraordinary Women turns the spotlight on women who have wielded power, revealing their feats--and flaws--for all the world to see. Here you'll find twenty of the most influential women in history: queens, warriors, prime ministers, first ladies, revolutionary leaders. Some are revered. Others are notorious. What were they really like?

In this grand addition to their highly praised series, Kathleen Krull and Kathryn Hewitt celebrate some of the world's most noteworthy women, ranging from the famous to those whose stories have rarely been told.

Features twenty extraordinary women, including:

Cleopatra

Joan of Arc

Elizabeth I

Harriet Tubman

Eleanor Roosevelt

Eva Perón

Synopsis:

Babe Ruth was the greatest slugger ever--and off the field snacked on pickled eels and chocolate ice cream. Johnny Weissmuller swam to Olympic fame--and on land practiced the Tarzan yell. “Krull hits another home run.”--American Bookseller
