Publisher's Comments
This impressive picture book will delight young readers as it gives a sense of this remarkable woman and the times in which she lived. -- School Library Journal (starred review)

An inspiring biography of a woman who rose from a bleak world of poverty and discrimination to unprecedented success as an influential businesswoman and philanthropist. Born December 23, 1867, Sarah Breedlove Walker was the youngest and first freeborn child in her family. As sharecroppers, their lives were hard, but slavery had ended, and the Breedlove family was free. And if you were free, you could dream.
Back matter includes an epilogue, an illustrator's note, sources, and an index.
