    I have always had an interest in Clara Barton so when I saw this book and found out about the biography unit we were assigned involved reading a biography, I knew this is what I wanted to read about I truly do feel as if Clara is a very inspiring person and her whole life story and work ethic really is amazing.

    Well designed and written This book is an easy read, but still makes a very comprehensive view of the life of a busy, driven woman who was eager to make the world a better place Good pictures and back matter.
