In America: A Patriotic Primer, Lynne Cheney, senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute and wife of Vice President Dick Cheney, introduced the founding principles of our country to our nation's youngest citizens. Now she brings America's children and families the stories of the many great women who are part of our history and our lives. Spanning our time as a nation, her latest book is filled with details to pore over and discuss in a celebration of the diversity, tenacity, and ingenuity of American women. With the letters of the alphabet as an outline, each page is illustrated in words, through quotations from historical sources; and in pictures, through exuberant and detailed drawings by renowned illustrator Robin Preiss Glasser.

Each letter of the alphabet is represented by an important woman in the history of the United States, as well as others in her same field of accomplishment.

Lynne V. Cheney is a senior fellow at AEI.
