Overview

This lavishly illustrated account of the fascinating life of the woman who started it all.

Juliette (Daisy) Gordon Low was a remarkable woman with ideas that were ahead of her time. She witnessed important eras in U.S. history, from the Civil War and Reconstruction to westward expansion to post–World War I. And she made history by founding the first national organization to bring girls from all backgrounds into the out-of-doors. Daisy created controversy by encouraging them to prepare not only for traditional homemaking but also for roles as professional women—in the arts, sciences, and business—and for active citizenship outside the home. Her group also welcomed girls with disabilities at a time when they were usually excluded. Includes author’s note, source notes, bibliography, timeline, places to visit, the Girl Scout Promise and Law, and musical notation for the favorite scout song “Make New Friends.”

I understand a new edition of the NOOK book will be available and my current one will be replaced. The information in the book is great--references to the Roy Scouts, Gin! Scouts, and every fl and fi is repeated so it says flflowers, fifirst, offificial--so it is very disconcerting to read. I understand the hard copy is great--I will be glad when I get my copy. I gave it four stars because I couldn't let it pass that the digital edition is so bad.
