" I really enjoyed reading about Juliette's life. I wish one day I am half as influential as she was. I really only wish after reading this that my girl scout experience was better. I very much enjoyed this book and will take it with me. " said.

" This book was amazing. Juliette Gordon Low and her Family led incredibly fascinating lives. Being friends with US Presidents, Kings and Queen's of England. Then they decide to do something to better all girls, and not for personal gain. Wonderful. " said.

" An extremely well-told story; I found myself moved emotionally by it. I'm looking forward to sharing what I learned with my Daisy daughter. I have a much stronger appreciation for my time in Girl Scouts now that I've learned the history and the story of the singularly driven woman behind it all. " said.

" Interesting and well researched and nicely designed. There is a lot of background history and details that will make this a less inviting read for younger girls. Cadette and Senior Girl Scouts might enjoy this and any adult working with Girl Scouts or with fond memories of being a Scout would find this interesting. " said.

" This is the problem with reading biographies of people that you admire: you might learn something about them that disappoints you. By no fault of the author, this biography was disappointing because I learned things about Juliette Gordon Low that I wish I didn't know. Bummer.Full review forthcoming on www.slatebreakers.com. " said.

" I am not a girl scout, but I am a fan of their cookies. This is a terrific biography of a woman who lived through important historic events and went on to make a lasting difference in the lives of many young women. There are many photos of people and places to add interest to an already exciting life. Perfect amount of detail for a middle/high school aged audience, but I would love to read an adult version of this book that focused more on Low's life abroad and travels. " said.

" I don't think I learned anything NEW from this book (I've read a lot of Juliette Low material before), but it is well-written and interesting to read. It's also physically a lovely book -- a square hardcover, 8 or 9 inches wide, with plenty of pictures. I suspect it's meant to mimic a Girl Scout handbook. There are pictures I hadn't seen before included, as well as historical photos not necessarily specific to the Gordons/Lows, but still interesting. " said.

"Heavily researched, solid book about the life of Juliette Gordon Low. Has lots of quotes and photographs on nearly every page. Gives a detailed portrait of her parents first, with brief explanation of Civil War as backdrop to her early childhood; this might put off some younger readers who want to get "right to the story" of Juliette, but it lays a nice groundwork. Well written, not especially lyrical but matter-of-fact and has an affectionate tone. I learned a ton about her from this book, and I had been a Girl Scout for many years!" said.
