Publisher's Summary

Annie Edson Taylor went over Niagara Falls in a barrel. Mabel Stark wrestled with tigers. Sonora Webster Carver plummeted 40 feet on horseback into a tank of water. These and the 11 other women profiled in this book performed between 1880 and 1929, when females were expected to stay home and raise families, not entertain crowds with acts of derring-do. Their bravado, equal to that of any male thrill-seeker, made them inspiring at a time when women were testing the waters of equality and freedom.

    "My 8 year old daughter Loved this"
    If you could sum up Women Daredevils in three words, what would they be?

    My daughter loves history, and loves hearing about women in history so she devoured this one and recited all the facts to us afterward. Great for a fact loving kid.

    "Lots of great info!"

    This audiobook was a lifesaver for my 6th grader! She had put off reading a book for a book report that was due in just 2 days, when I found out about it. Even though I did put her on restriction for putting it off so long, I didn't want it to have a bad affect on her grades. So I looked through the audiobooks on Audible and found this book that was read to her in only 52 minutes. The subject matter was perfect for her too; women daredevils! I would suggest, however, for anyone else planning on doing a book report on it, that they get the book.... ebook or otherwise. Because there is so much information in it that we had to stop the player every 2 seconds or so to write it all down! It's actually good that she had to do that so that she didn't get to just skate through it, since I wouldn't want to reward her for putting it off. This audiobook was also very interesting and put forth in an entertaining manner, even though it was so fact-filled. By the way, she did get a good grade on it.
