Synopsis

Discover the hidden figures of historyFor fans of Downton Abbey, The Woman Who Smashed Codes, and An American Princess will love Time Travel with the History Chicks: The Women of America's Glittering Age



A series about women in history: Women and girls are hungry for role models, but history is often taught as a one-dimensional recitation of dates, kings, leaders, and their battles. In truth, history is really nothing more than the story of living humans within their times. This bold and insightful new series, brought to you by the women behind The History Chicks podcast, annotates those particular times by focusing on the forces, objects, events, and issues that make up the individual histories of the women who lived them.



Learn about the women who shaped America's Gilded Age: Time Travel with the History Chicks is a behind-the-formal-portrait look into America's "glittering" Gilded Age, 1870-1912, told through a new female lens and bursting with things you didn't know, fun facts and trivia, and insightful commentary. The History Chicks explore everything in the day-to-day lives of American Gilded Age women, from alcohol to zoetropes, and make the stories of these women relatable by tying them to modern women.



Suffragettes, pioneer women, American princesses, women in science, and more: Learn about women like Jennie Jerome Churchill (mother of Winston and one of the first "Buccaneers"), Ida B. Wells-Barnett (civil rights/journalism), Caroline Weldon (Native American rights), Madam CJ Walker (hair care and franchising), Josephine Cochrane (dishwasher inventor) and Lillian Gilbreth (mother of a dozen children and the step trash can). The profiles in this book cross economic, occupational, and societal levels-bringing the most dynamic look into the Gilded Age and the women who lived it. The portal to history is open-get ready to time travel into the past with The History Chicks in this fun and informative new read.

Beckett Graham and Susan Vollenweider have co-hosted and produced the award-winning women's history biography podcast, The History Chicks since 2011 and the history based media podcast, The Recappery since 2017. As a small child, Beckett was struck by a line in Laura Ingalls Wilder's Little House in the Big Woods. "Now is now, it can never be a long time ago." This early understanding of the personal nature of history has informed her approach to studying the past. The podcast was born out of the frustration with the lack of women's history coverage online. Susan is a weekly columnist for The Kansas City Star. She received a D in her high school AP history class but later in life realized that history isn't dates and wars and the men who fought them-history is people. A door opened and she stepped through it. Elevator Pitch: Time travel with the award-winning podcasters The History Chicks, as they creatively guide readers through America's Gilded Age and the legendary women who lived it.
