Girl Scouts: A Celebration of 100 Trailblazing Years
By Betty Christiansen
Hardcover, 224 pages ($29.95)
As everyone knows, Girl Scouts do a lot more than sell cookies. A century of role-model sisterhood is celebrated in this handsome coffee-table collection, which connects the dots between yesteryear and today with archival photos of ordinary activities and momentous events, reminders of famous alumnae (including TV journalists Barbara Walters and Katie Couric, golfer Nancy Lopez and former U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor), and a narrative that explains how the organization continues to balance the tide of progress with the anchor of tradition.
