"Using a host of primary sources, author Brandon Marie Miller recounts the roles, hardships, and daily lives of Native American, European, and African women in 17th- and 18th-century colonial America. Hard work proved a constant for most women--they ensured their family's survival through their skills while others sold their labor or lived in bondage as indentured servants and slaves. Even in this world defined entirely by men, a world where no one thought it important to record a female's thoughts, women found ways to step forth. Elizabeth Ashbridge survived an abusive indenture to become a Quaker preacher. Anne Bradstreet penned epic poetry while raising eight children in the wilderness. Anne Hutchinson went toe-to-toe with Puritan authorities. Margaret Hardenbroeck Philipse built a trade empire in New Amsterdam. Martha Corey lost her life in the vortex of Salem's witch hunt. And Eve, a Virginia slave, twice ran away to freedom. With strength, courage, resilience, and resourcefulness, these women and many others played a vital role in the mosaic of life in colonial America"-- Provided by publisher.

Mann, Charles C.

407 pages : illustrations, map, some color ; 22 cm.
Includes index.
"1493 for Young People by Charles C. Mann tells the gripping story of globalization through travel, trade, colonization, and migration from its beginnings in the fifteenth century to the present. How did the lowly potato plant feed the poor across Europe and then cause the deaths of millions? How did the rubber plant enable industrialization? What is the connection between malaria, slavery, and the outcome of the American Revolution? How did the fabled silver mountain of sixteenth-century Bolivia fund economic development in the flood-prone plains of rural China and the wars of the Spanish Empire? Here is the story of how sometimes the greatest leaps also posed the greatest threats to human advancement."-- Provided by publisher.

Introduction -- What is stalking? -- Why does stalking happen? -- How to cope with being stalked -- Stalking and the law -- Getting help.
More than six and a half million people are stalked every year in the United States. One in six women and one in nineteen men report having been stalked at some point in their lives. The majority of stalkers are known to the victims and are often current or former romantic partners. Half of female stalking victims were under the age of twenty-five when the stalking began. The impact upon stalking victims is severe. Many fear it will never end. They miss significant amounts of school or work. They are always afraid of what may happen next. Some feel forced to move to escape the stalking. Anxiety, depression, insomnia, and social isolation become common. Victims of stalking feel helpless, alone, and completely vulnerable. But there are steps that can be taken to involve law enforcement, insist upon the protections of the law, and rebuild a sense of empowerment, independence, and ownership of one's own life. This resource will help you secure the help you need, regain control, and reengage with the world around you.

January 25, 2016
[Washington, DC] : Shout Mouse Press, 2015.
73 pages : color illustrations ; 26 cm
Through the course of a historic year of civil unrest and the emergence of the #BlackLivesMatter Movement, thirty teen writers from Frank W. Ballou High School in Washington, DC came together to take part in this national conversation about race, inequality, violence, and justice. Through their powerful, personal stories these writers intend to Change the Narrative about youth of color. We are not thugs, they say. We are not victims. We are big sisters and sports stars, academic strivers and everyday heroes. We speak out for justice. We dream big dreams. These writers want more for themselves, more for their community, more for their generation. And they are challenging their readers to listen, and to recognize in each story a common humanity worthy of dignity, support, and respect. This riot of voices must be heard.
