As a young girl, Margaret Bourke-White dreamed of having great adventures-the kind only a brave and fearless woman would have. As she grew up, she found that the camera was her ticket to adventure. Her portraits of people in terrible circumstances-from the desperate farmers of the Dust Bowl to the victims of World War II's horrors-made her famous worldwide. With her camera always at the ready, Margaret faced many challenges, including floods, bombings, and eventually her own battle with illness. In Margaret Bourke-White, award-winning author Catherine A. Welch creates a powerful portrait of a remarkable, gifted woman. Jennifer Hagerman's illustrations capture Margaret's own liveliness and strength.
