Around America to Win the Vote
Two Suffragists, a Kitten, and 10,000 Miles

author: Mara Rockliff
illustrator: Hadley Hooper

In April 1916, Nell Richardson and Alice Burke set out from New York City in a little yellow car, embarking on a bumpy, unmapped journey ten thousand miles long. They took with them a typewriter, a sewing machine, a wee black kitten, and a message for Americans all across the country: Votes for Women! Braving blizzards, deserts, and naysayers, the two courageous friends made their way through the cities and towns of America to further their cause. One hundred years after Nell and Alice set off on their trip, Mara Rockliff revives their spirit in a lively and whimsical picture book, with exuberant illustrations by Hadley Hooper bringing their inspiring historical trek to life.

“This high-spirited picture book, as engaging as it is informative, follows the women on their journey. . . . A delightful way to introduce two fascinating historical figures.” — Booklist (starred review)
