Most young readers know that Rosa Parks refused to sit at the back of the bus one fateful day in Montgomery, Alabama. Yet the incident that propelled her to the front of the civil rights movement was just one moment in an extraordinary life. This book takes a close look at Parks' early life, and also follows her political career after the bus boycott.
