Discover A dramatic and poignant portrait.
American Scientist Excellent...a significant contribution to the recent history of science...informative and delightful to read.

Margaret Cheney is a biographer of unusual versatility.

Cheney is also the author of Meanwhile Farm and Why: The Serial Killer in America. She lives in California.See all Editorial Reviews
