Description: Well-crafted and in-depth, They Dared to Dream has moved women, their experiences, and their contributions to the forefront of Floridas history and heritage. This is a long-overdue and much-needed turning point in understanding our states past and present.Canter Brown Jr., coeditor of The Varieties of Womens Experiences Represents a leap forward in the study of Florida history. Weatherford has done an outstanding job of researching and writing about Florida women, from paupers to queens, elevating their status to a level of equality within the overall story of Florida.Rodney Kite-Powell, Saunders Foundation Curator of History at the Tampa Bay History Center and editor of Tampa Bay History Exhaustively researched, well written, and engaging, They Dared to Dream breaks new ground in the study of Florida. Doris Weatherfords ambitious history of women in Florida will be widely read and discussed. From Princess Ulele to Alex Sink, from the role of criollas in Colonial St. Augustine to the struggles of women in the twenty-first century, Weatherford chronicles their lives in the Sunshine State.Gary Mormino, author of Land of Sunshine, State of Dreams In this extensive portrayal of Floridas guiding matriarchs, Doris Weatherford highlights the myriad contributions women have made throughout Floridas history. From the select few who traveled with Ponce de Leon to the states first female mayor Marion H. OBrien, Weatherford sheds light on the roles these pioneering women played in the shaping of the Sunshine State. They Dared to Dream reveals the lifestyles and achievements of women throughout landmark moments in history, including Native civilizations before the arrival of European colonists early Spanish, British, and French exploration, the Civil War era, Reconstruction, the early twentieth century, and the population explosions postWorld War II. Featuring often-celebrated personalitiesincluding Mary Martha Reid, Harriet Beecher Stowe, and Elizabeth Cady Stantonalongside the lesser-known lives of Princess Murat, lighthouse keeper Barbara Mabrity, Florida Memorial College founder Sarah Ann Blocker, and othersthis pivotal examination of Floridas female agents of change draws attention to womens instrumental roles in the historical events that defined the Sunshine State. From prehistoric times to the space age, the female half of the population has made giant, but too often unacknowledged, contributions to Florida history. Countless women have overcome great obstacles and yet are often left out of historical accounts. They Dared to Dream aims to fill in some of these gaps by celebrating the many successes women have made. Because without women, there is no historynor any future.
