Ten Girls from History
by Kate Dickinson Sweetser
Publisher: Duffield & Company 1912
Number of pages: 228
The plan has been to call attention to the lives of girls who achieved some noteworthy success during youth, and in whose character courage was the dominant trait. More attention has been paid to accuracy of historic fact than to the weaving of interesting romances, in the hope that this volume may be used as an introduction to the more detailed historical documents from which its sketches are taken.
