We've discovered how many extraordinary Canadian women whose stories have never been told or just briefly sketched in Forster's first book, "100 Canadian Heroines." Now comes the second volume of another amazing battalion of Canadian women whom the author has discovered through her own travels and thorough research. It saddens me to think I lived among the spirits of these amazing women for so long, never knowing how they had blazed a trail for me--from Edmonton's first Canadian architext, Esther Hill, to Clara Brett Martin who dared to be our first female lawyer when women weren't yet allowed to sit in provincial or federal legislatures. Thank you to those women and to Ms. Forster.
