Product description


"'McMahon and Sharpe present the Famous Five's story with fairness and balance, neither downplaying their achievements nor trying to daub blemish remover on their flaws. Their book is a welcome relief from the standard pap that has been churned out over the years about these women.' Naomi Lakritz, Calgary Herald"
