Daughters of Time
edited by Mary Hoffman
A rich and important contribution to British history by members of The History Girls blog, including Catherine Johnson, Mary Hoffman, Adèle Geras, Celia Rees and Katherine Langrish. An exciting collection of historical figures whose names should be shouted, remembered and properly canonised in the history curriculum; from the wonderful Mary Seacole to the fearless Emily Davison, from Mary Anning the explorer to the Greenham Common revolutionaries. 'Well written, as you would expect from these authors. Interesting to read why they chose who they did and useful background info.' (Fiona, School Librarian, LL reviewer). Age 9-14, Paperback 333pp
