From classrooms to boardrooms, audiences of all ages delight in the magic of living history that connects the present with the past to inspire listeners for a better future.   Gifted storyteller Mary Jane Bradbury brings history to life through the lives of outstanding women who made a difference -

           * Jeannette Rankin, the first woman elected to Congress

* Augusta Tabor, Colorado pioneer and scorned wife in one of the 19th century's most prominent scandals

* Martha Maxwell, Rocky Mountain pioneer taxidermist and naturalist

* Margaret "Molly" Brown, feminist, reformer and philanthropist, the "unsinkable Mrs. Brown" who survived the Titanic disaster

* Nancy Cooper Russell, wife and business manager of Montana western artist Charles M. Russell

*Learn what "Well Behaved Women Rarely Make History" means through the compelling stories of history's mavericks and crusaders.
