VISIONARY WOMEN How Rachel Carson, Jane Jacobs, Jane Goodall, and Alice Waters Changed Our World

by | Read by Cassandra Campbell

Biography & Memoir • 19.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

Unburdened by traditional thinking and guided by intuitive insights, four women--Rachel Carson, Jane Jacobs, Jane Goodall, and Alice Waters--reshaped the public's thinking on the environment, urban planning, primate behavior, and diet, respectively. This book offers clear and concise yet illuminating biographies of each. Cassandra Campbell offers an easy-on-the-ears reading. Her voice virtually revels in the women's accomplishments and shares their frustration with outdated thinking, primarily male. The only drawback is in the Goodall section, when numerous letters are quoted. The attributions are awkwardly placed, which makes the reading slightly choppy at times. But this minor flaw doesn't distract from the overall work. R.C.G. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2018]
