The book opens with the story of Mary Hooks Slocumb, born in 1760, a heroine of the American Revolution, and concludes with the biography of Maggie Axe Wachacha, a Cherokee healer, treaty clerk and midwife who delivered more than 3000 babies before she died in 1993. Between, we meet a dozen other fascinating women who played significant roles in the advancement of North Carolina's social conditions, politics, education and health.
Scotti Kent is a strong writer - her spare, evocative prose draws readers in immediately and holds our interest and attention throughout each chapter. That these women's stories were of consistent interest to a reader who has never (yet) set foot in North Carolina is a testimony to not only the admirable qualities of the subjects' lives but also to the strength and clarity of the writing.
