I Dwell in Possibility
Women Build A Nation, 1600-1920Book - 2001
Showcasing a gorgeous selection of 160 paintings, photographs, and artifacts, I Dwell in Possibility sweeps across three centuries of history to present a vivid gallery of women who in ways great and small shaped America's character and ideals from the country's beginnings to the early 1900s. Some are famous, familiar names, others unknown and unsung, but all share a spirit of independence and adventure that is uniquely, truly American. Theirs is an important, inspiring story, yet it's rarely told -- and never with the splendor and style of this stunning volume.
