Someone needed to write this book. So lucky for us that Michael Helquist did. It is meticulously researched and cogently written. But best of all, Helquist brings to his subject precisely the kind of appreciation this important historical figure deserves, presenting her in full, living color for the amazing person she was. This is the kind of history that is always hidden from view: the ones who challenged authority and the authorities in many ways and did it with courage and with considerable risk to her own safety, freedom and well-being.
A great read and a critical story to understand and relish.
