Rad American History A-Z: Movements & Moments that Demonstrate the Power of the People
by Kate Schatz and Miriam Klein Stahl (Ten Speed Press, 2020)
“From the same writer and artist duet behind Rad American Women A-Z, this current volume is a colorful, paper-cut illustrated collection of radical and transformative political, social, and cultural movements in American history. Rad American History reads the way contemporary history textbooks and national narratives should—with women’s and other marginalized people’s voices, contributions, and impacts seamlessly written into the heart of each story. This volume brings sunlight to movements (both past and present), issues, and institutions that have not always been given their proper place in contemporary history discussions. If I could build a women’s museum around visual arts and books, Schatz and Klein’s work would be at its center.” — Lori Ann Terjesen, NWHM Director of Education

"Do women act differently on mountains? There are not many female leaders in mountaineering, but I have some examples. I had a female guide on Mt. Rainer and almost immediately I could tell her style apart from her male peers." Read Vanessa O'Brien's article about what she learned while becoming the first American woman to summit K2; the first to receive a Guinness World Record for summiting the highest peak on every continent, including Everest in 295 days; and one of eight women to have skied the last degree to the North and South Poles.
