Uppity Women of the New World

Vicki Leon, Author Conari Press $17.95 (260p) ISBN 978-1-57324-187-8
There are more than enough feisty women on this side of the Atlantic to fill an entire book, decided Vicki Le n (Uppity Women of the Renaissance, etc.), so she did. The result is Uppity Women of the New World, a hilarious yet sobering glance at 200 women in North and South America and Australia who took their destinies into their own hands. Some are famous, but most are not, like enterprising Mary Salmon, who in 1754 wasted no time picking up where her late husband left off as a Boston blacksmith and continued, as advertised, to shod gentlemen's horses ""with fidelity and dispatch."" 5-city author tour.
