"A must-read for anyone seeking inspiration to overcome social barriers and to shatter glass ceilings."-- "Carolyn Porter, author of Marcel's Letters: A Font and the Search for One Man's Fate"
"A reminder that even in the toughest of environments, if you give someone a chance, they will excel beyond expectations. It is the lesson, the story, and the life of Raye Montague."-- "Artemesia Stanberry, coauthor of Stealth Reconstruction "
"Robin Eller...brings enthusiasm and vocal integrity to the task of showing listeners just who this 'little girl from Little Rock' really was...There is a novelistic feel to the narrative that makes Raye seem real and her accomplishments in overcoming social barriers just as important as her computer programming successes. Kevin Kenerly reads a small section by David Montague, Raye's son."-- "AudioFile"
"The powerful and inspiring story of a woman who refused to be stopped by the dual challenges of racism and sexism in the largely male, largely White world of the early days of computer science."-- "Pamela D. Toler, author of Women Warriors "
"What an amazing story about an amazing woman!...Montague's life demonstrates what a determined woman can accomplish even when the deck is doubly stacked against her."-- "Theresa Kaminski, historian and author of Dr. Mary Walker's Civil War" --This text refers to the audioCD edition.
