WONDER WOMEN
Which famous American dropped out of school so she could nurse her sick brother for two years – by putting leeches on him to drain his blood? Who was arrested for voting for a president? Who was a wanted woman in the South with a $40,000 bounty on her head? Meet Clara Barton, Harriet Tubman, Susan B. Anthony, and Helen Keller in this funny, colorful graphic novel that will excite young readers, prepare students for further learning about history, and give kids insight into current events.

CHAPTER 1: CLARA BARTON
Clara Barton is born as the youngest child. She is shy – until her brother’s illness teaches her about the medicine of the day. She puts this nursing knowledge to work when America splits in a violent Civil War. The armies have no official nurses, so Barton takes her own supplies and knowledge onto the battlefield.

-How did Barton join the Civil War?
-How close was Barton to battles?
-Did the army ban Barton from hospitals?
-Who begins the American Red Cross?

CHAPTER 2: HARRIET TUBMAN
Harriet Tubman is born a slave on a Maryland plantation. She is injured by a heavy weight and will have dizziness and blackouts the rest of her life. But that does not stop her from running north to freedom on the “Underground Railroad.” And it does not stop her from going back to the South to rescue other slaves. How many can she save before she is recaptured?

-Did spells stop Harriet Tubman?

CHAPTER 3: SUSAN B. ANTHONY
Susan B. Anthony is bothered that so many people fight to free African-Americans from slavery but will not fight to free women from their legal bonds. She begins a campaign to win women the right to vote and to own their own property. And she may go to jail for trying to vote in the presidential election of 1872.

In 1887, Anne Sullivan finally reaches the six-year-old. Sullivan’s lessons will open Keller to the world – and the world to Keller.
