FIERCE: WOMEN WHO SHAPED CANADA by Lisa Dalrymple — MG
I’ve just started reading this, and had to come to my blog to urge you to find it and read it too.
From the blurb on the back cover, “Meet 10 remarkable women you’ve probably never heard of. They battled bears and cougars, traversed mountains and extreme terrain, endured hardship during wartime and challenged ideas of what was appropriate for women in their time.”
From the acknowledgements, I can tell that Lisa researched this book thoroughly and vigorously. From what I’ve read thus far, I can also tell that she knows how to take rigorous research and make the person come to life on the page.
But don’t take my word for it! Check out this post on 49th Shelf, and Lisa’s website.
Best of all, if you are in or near Fergus or Toronto, Ontario on March 2, you can attend one of her book launch events! (Details at the link to her website.)
