About the author (2003)

Lynne Cheney is the author of America: A Patriotic Primer and a longtime advocate of teaching our country's history to children. A widely published author who holds a Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin, Mrs. Cheney believes that the story of America's women is particularly important for children and young people to know.

"What American women have accomplished is truly amazing," Mrs. Cheney says. "In their dreams, hard work, and high achievement, all of us can find inspiration."

Mrs. Cheney, pictured here with some of tomorrow's amazing American women, is a senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute in Washington, D.C. She is married to Vice President Dick Cheney, and they have two daughters and three granddaughters.
