I could not put this book down! I was an abused child in the 1960's and we had alot in common. I never knew the start of Child Protection or ASPCA, this was a very informative story. I am now the mother of 2 and grandmother of 2 and I am a court appointed advocate for children who are abused. I have bought this book for friends and family and I tell everyone to read it.

In 1874 Mary Ellen Wilson, 9 years old, was rescued from a severely abusive situation. Her case triggered new laws and an organization to prevent and rescue abused children. The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children. A heartwarming story of the first child rescue with pictures of when she was a ragged child and shortly before her death at 92.

What an important story to be told. Children have been abused since the dawn of time but Mary Ellen Wilson marks a change in our conscienceness. Many of the articles in the books are repetious but very much worth the read. I somehow got this book in kindle edition in late 2010 or2011.

More people should read this story. Go hug a child.
