Excerpt from The Life of Abraham Lincoln for Boys and Girls Every American, over eight years old, ought to know the story of Abraham Lincoln's life. More than this, every American ought to know the best of Lincoln's writings. Above all, every American ought to know the man, Abraham Lincoln. To give to children an understanding of his great life, an appreciation of the simplicity and purity of his literary style, and a love of the man, has been the purpose of this little book.
Excerpt from Out-Door Sports for Boys (and Girls) It is, perhaps, needless to say that no attempt has been made in this volume to include every form of out-door recreation with which boys and girls amuse themselves during vacation or in play-time. Only such games as have proved their popularity, and only such sports as seem especially adapted to the taste of young Americans, have here been described.
Excerpt from Supervised Study in American History There is probably no subject in the curriculum which offers greater possibilities for the inauguration of supervised study than American History. It is generally conceded, however, that this subject frequently has been as little understood or enjoyed, by the average boy or girl, as any subject studied in our elementary or secondary schools.

Excerpt from True Stories of the American Fathers, for the Girls and Boys All Over the Land The Authoress of the accompanying little volume thinks no apology necessary for presenting to our young people an "old story." Being a story of the "immortals," it will bear to be retold all down the ages. She remembers how her own childish imagination was stirred with its wonders and glories; how she found the old Greek valors and heroisms, the statuesque Roman virtues and patriotisms, and the romantic exploits of the "Coeurs de Lions" of the Crusades, all paralleled in this story of the early heroes of our own land.

A New York Times bestseller, this revelatory and redemptive memoir from Beverly Johnson, the first black supermodel to grace the cover of Vogue, and who, over five hundred magazine covers later, remains one of the most successful glamour girls of all time, goes behind the lens and glossy magazine covers. Growing up a studious, bookish child during the socially conscious, racially charged 60s, Beverly Johnson never imagined that she would irrevocably change modern fashion by becoming the first black cover model of American Vogue in 1974.

Excerpt from One American Girl Two young girls were walking side by side through a garden fragrant with aromatic flowers. The plants and shrubs seemed to exert a sharp rivalry as to which should send forth on the balmy air the most delightful fragrance, and to bow their heads and permit their branches to nod in obeisance as the two sweetest buds of all - Northern and Southern - walked down the graveled pathway, toward the wicket gate that opened out on the boulevard.

Ordinary women in 1920s America. All they wanted was the chance to shine. Be careful what you wish for. 'The first thing we asked was, "Does this stuff hurt you?"

Excerpt from The College Girl of America: And the Institutions Which Make Her What She Is The college girl is to-day a force second to none in American life. She it is who will mould the minds, modify the manners, and help raise the moral tone of the men and women of the future. And she will do this not merely through her schoolteacher function, - though there, of course, her influence must be tremendous, - not chiefly through the relation of wife and mother, though that, too, is of vast importance, but principally and above all, I believe, through her every-day intercourse with those about her, as the friend of her chosen intimates, the companion of her chance associates, and the comrade of her fellow workers.
A provocative collection of personal and political essays by an American writer, Raising Girls in Bohemia chronicles the life of a father raising three perfectly bilingual, culturally bifurcated, Czech-American daughters.

The hit 1992 film A League of Their Own made the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League famous. But the players stories remain largely untold. The 600 women who played for the AAGPBL through the 1940s and 1950s enjoyed a rare opportunity to lead independent lives as well-paid professional athletes. Their experiences in the league led many to education and careers they never imagined.
Our image of nineteenth-century American women is generally divided into two broad classifications: victims and revolutionaries. This divide has served the purposes of modern feminists well, allowing them to claim feminism as the only viable role model for women of the nineteenth century. In All-American Girl, however, Frances B. Cogan identifies amid these extremes a third ideal of femininity: the Real Woman.

For a dozen years in the 1940s and 1950s, more than 700 women played professional baseball in the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League. Though some saw their brand of ball as a sideshow or wartime diversion, the women were all tough competitors and superb athletes. They set records that remain unequaled by their male counterparts, including Sophie Kurys' 201 stolen bases in a single season and Joanne Winter's 63 consecutive scoreless innings.
