Library Journal Review

Edwards, a respected foreign correspondent, profiles the adventuresome, daredevil women who have plied her trade, from Margaret Fuller, hired by Horace Greeley in 1846, to Georgie Anne Geyer, now writing a syndicated foreign affairs column. ``Tis an evil lot, to have a man's ambition and a woman's heart,'' Fuller wrote, and Edwards chronicles how these courageous womensome truly eccentric, and most considered so by their families, peers, and male counterpartsstruggled with the sexual stereotypes of the day. Edwards tells the dramatic stories of writers, photographers, and broadcastersMargaret Bourke-White, Dorothy Thompson, Marguerite Higgins, Martha Gellhornand other lesser-known but fascinating women. Barbara Belford's Brilliant Bylines ( LJ 8/86) included many, but Edwards is first to focus solely on women foreign correspondents. An exciting look at history and journalism.Melinda Stivers Leach, Precision Editorial Svces., Wondervu, Col. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
