Deborah Sampson, a true hero of the American Revolutionary War, is the only woman in early American history thought to serve as a soldier without being discovered. Her patriotic zeal leads the young woman to disguise herself as a man, and to enlist as a soldier in Washington's Continental Army. At West Point her officers choose her for membership in an elite corps, The Light Infantrymen. The military action and episodes of Deborah's story are based on real events. After the war, Deborah became the first American woman to set out alone to tour as a speaker for compensation, and the first to receive a full pension as a soldier for serving in the army. The actions she took enabled her to live life by her own lights in a society that appeared hostile to the value of women—for they had no legal rights. Their voices and plight were ignored, except for those whose husbands, or fathers, were more enlightened and compassionate. Deborah's story shows that courage and bravery know no gender, and calls us to empathy, and to a wider vision of the world as we stand in someone else's shoes, if only as reader. Deborah's journey is one in which men, women and children actively participated in the shaping of our nation, and that physical, spiritual and psychological freedoms are the right of both genders.This is a look at the far past, which in many ways is not so different from our modern era. The struggle to individualize and to find a place where one can live and thrive is a challenge all of us have faced, or are facing. Each man, woman and child must find within themselves the courage to stand up, to live a life of integrity with the kind of grit, tenacity and care for others that life requires. Deborah's life is a testament to the difficulties of that challenge and of their resolution—or at the least how to live well in spite of life's often unasked for trials and hardships.

In the 1700s, women's responsibilities were primarily child rearing and household duties. But Deborah Sampson wanted more from life. She wanted to read, to travel—and to fight for her country's independence. When the colonies went to war with the British in 1775, Deborah was intent on being part of the action. Seeing no other option, she disguised herself in a man's uniform and served in the Continental army for more than a year, her identity hidden from her fellow soldiers. Accomplished writer Sheila Solomon Klass creates a gripping firstperson account of an extraordinary woman who lived a life full of danger, adventure, and intrigue.

"This may be the most exhilarating and revelatory history of our country. It is must reading for today's youth-as well as their elders." --Studs Terkel From the boys who sailed with Columbus to today's young activists, this unique book brings to life the contributions of young people throughout American history. Based on primary sources and including 160 authentic images, this handsome oversized volume highlights the fascinating stories of more than 70 young people from diverse cultures. Young readers will be hooked into history as they meet individuals their own age who were caught up in our country's most dramatic moments-Olaudah Equiano, kidnapped from his village in western Africa and forced into slavery, Anyokah, who helped her father create a written Cherokee language, Johnny Clem, the nine-year-old drummer boy who became a Civil War hero, and Jessica Govea, a teenager who risked joining Cesar Chavez's fight for a better life for farmworkers. Throughout, Philip Hoose's own lively, knowledgeable voice provides a rich historical context-making this not only a great reference-but a great read. The first U.S. history book of this scope to focus on the role young people have played in the making of our country, its compelling stories combine to tell our larger national story, one that prompts Howard Zinn, author of A People's History of the United States, to comment, "This is an extraordinary book-wonderfully readable, inspiring to young and old alike, and unique." We Were There, Too! is a 2001 National Book Award Finalist for Young People's Literature.

This is a compilation of original poetry and song lyrics by Marilyn Gilbert Komechak. Ms. Komechak is an award-winning, published poet and songwriter. Michael Baldwin, President of the Fort Worth Poetry Society and winner of two state-level poetry manuscript contests, said of this book, "Are you missing the duende, the deep passion in poetry that is haunted by reminders of mortality? You will find it in abundance in these wonderful poems by Marilyn Komechak, but also her exuberant love of life and her uncanny evocation of sun-washed Southwest Texas, New Mexico, and even more exotic imaginary venues. There is something to astonish in almost every poem: tear-catchers from the Civil War, ancient Indian petroglyphs, Russian holy icons on barn steps, meditations on pentimenti. Each poem is extraordinary in extraordinary ways. Then come the song lyrics. Willie and Waylon need not apply. These are story songs of sly insouciance amid deceptively simple tales. I've loved and been nourished by Marilyn's writing for many years; I think you will too if you are sufficiently adventurous." Marilyn Gilbert Komechak is a licensed psychologist who has served as a consultant to schools, businesses, and corporations. While maintaining a private practice, she wrote numerous articles and a book, Getting Yourself Together. She continued writing after she retired and has now included an award-winning children's book, Paisano Pete: Snake-killer Bird, a children's historical narrative about Deborah Sampson, a true hero of the American Revolutionary War, entitled The Girl Who Went to War; and she collaborated with her talented artist daughter, Kim Komechak, on an illustrated collection of poetry and paintings, titled Painted Poems: Interior Scapes. Now, she offers this beautiful collection of poetry and song lyrics which take the reader on a moonlit waltz through a world filled with laughter, tears, song, and wisdom. Come glide along the Pecos, find yourself in the reflection of a painting or dusty petroglyph, or learn Sacajawea's nickname.

Lerner offers an entirely new framework for the study of women's history in America which avoids the traditional chronological periods by which U.S. history is most often studied and instead groups sources according to the life cycle of women, their roles in a male-defined society, in the workplace, in politics, and finally in the contemporary world where feminism is creating an altogether new consciousness.
