By Idella Bodie-- This great book profiles fifty-one "Palmetto" women, from colonial  to current times.  Written to appeal to readers of all ages, the book is especially intended to help young people appreciate the contributions women have made to this state and the nation. The stories of South Carolina's leading women are told in lively, narrative form.  Readers first meet Judith Giton Manigault, a French Huguenot who wielded an ax clearing land for her new home in South Carolina in the 1600s, the founder of a great family.  Then in chronological order, come stories of women black and white, young and old, wartime heroines and leaders in medicine, education, the arts, sports, and government. A final chapter provides basic biographical data on many other South Carolina women who have distinguished themselves in their fields, and a bibliography is included to encourage further reading. Soft cover, 198 pages.
