" 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.

" 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 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.

" 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.

" 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.

" 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'm a little mixed on this one. The design was flawless-- very engaging, and thematic without distracting the reader. The book is very well-researched, and the photographs really add to the content. However, I thought the narrative rambled a little it, and there was far too much of the pre-Juliette years of her parents' lives. Additionally, the book didn't really delve into the class issue as much as I would've liked-- it is very clear that the only way Juliette was able to accomplish so much was because of her wealth and connections, yet the book only scratches the surface of that issue." said.

"This biography about Juliette Gordon Low (1860-1927), founder of the Girl Scouts in the United States, is best for older students. Scout leaders may also enjoy reading parts of it (especially parts about Juliette's childhood) to their younger troop members.
Juliette Gordon Low was quite the woman. She was the opposite ends of the spectrum. Knew how to be thrifty and go without, yet at the same time host lavish dinner parties for kings and presidents. Lost most of her hearing by 30 and remained as outgoing as she always had been.
" said.
