A stunning book!

by AnchorageSchools (WorldCat user published 2010-02-10) Excellent Permalink

In verse, narrative and pictures this book tells the story of the an all female blues band in the 1930's.  It is stunning.  I would recommend looking through it once just for the pictures before reading it.
