From Publishers Weekly
In this Women of Our Time biography, the author follows Lange from her birth in 1895 to her death in 1965. "Meltzer writes as accessibly to younger children as he does to advanced readers of his distinguished nonfiction. The story is outstanding," PW noted.

'Lange's work defines an era of destitution and drought, and still resonates even now. This is the perfect introduction to one of the world's greatest photojournalists. Practical Photography 'Lange was the first woman to be awarded the Guggenheim Photography Fellowship and this book showcases her most famous work, an arresting 55-picture, chronologically ordered documentation of the lives of migrant workers during the Great Depression.'

she's an American Heroine and famous photographer during the 1930's dust bowl years.
She was hired by the Federal Farm Bureau to document famers life and the Grapes of Wrath lifestyle of migrant farm families.
Later, she documented Japanese American Internment camps, much to the dismay of the US Army, which heavily censored her photographs and later dumped them. A shameful American mistake of WW-II for which we can never apologize enough. Buying her books, helps.
The book needs much larger margins, the page text was very hard to read when it is within the fold of the book.
And the font choice seems rather difficult to read compared to most.
