How the struggles of the yester years are so relevant still! How they solved it but how will we?

Time very well spent.

Ms. Adams was an extraordinary human being and she continues to inspire us. I will certainly listen to this book again.

Quite interesting !

Nicely tells one of a different time and day. I would never have thought these experiences happened or existed if I didn't read this. I was blessed to have been given this book as a choice to read in a university class. Good to read it again 25 years later.

Enjoy! 🐣
