This overview of the life of Nellie McClung is very girl-friendly and historically accurate. The graphics are lively and engaging; a decorative bottom banner runs throughout the book to provide a lovely artistic flourish to each page. Positive role models for girls and young women appear throughout, and the narrative spans the birth-to-death experiences of Nellie. Additional information is included in an “Afterword,” including the less admirable facets of McClung’s belief system (i.e. her stance on eugenics). One caveat is that for some readers the many details included in the main narrative may seem a little dry or tedious; however, for the fan of history, this is an accessible account that adds a chapter to women’s place in the history of our province and this country.
