It wasn’t until Mercy was older that her literary life became known, with the publication of her three-volume history of the American Revolution. This is the first picture-book biography of an intrepid woman chronicler.

How little we know about our Founding Mothers. So great to have this in a simple yet profound book.

It's truly a tragedy that so few of us know about the women who have made a profound difference at every phase of history.
This kind of book helps.

I completely disagree about the so-called "bitter tone" mentioned by another reviewer. Men and women did have completely separate experiences and expectations in Colonial Days (and indeed throughout most of world history). The author does a very good job of showing young people how Mercy Otis Warren moved beyond the constraints of her times. It is a fascinating and very readable picture book biography of an overlooked woman in American Colonial History. Adults and teens might want to read more about this fascinating woman whose writings played a big role in the American Revolution in Cokie Roberts' book Founding Mothers.

One of our founding mothers, and an opportunity for children to read about a woman who influenced the beginning of our country. Excellent. I bought it for my 7 year old grand daughter, who reads above her age. I think it is excellent for 8 to 15 year olds.

I was excited to read this book, but did not enjoy the bitter tone. Nearly ever page has a phrase like "Not many men loved a smart woman, but James did" or "Most women would have stayed out of sight, but not Mercy" or "people wouldn't respect a woman writer." Can we appreciate a historical figure for her achievements in her own right, without being constantly reminded that she was a poor, unfortunate woman? We don't need to resent men for having such an easy time; in those days, no one had it easy. Few people had access to higher education, and few people wrote at all - Mercy was fascinating, and exceptional, and would have made a great subject for a book without the resentment.
