A well-done, thorough, readable account of Catt's life. For deeper analysis but less biographical detail, see "Carrie Catt, Feminist Politician", by Robert Booth Fowler. For a somewhat unreliable but spirited earlier biography, see the book by Mary Grey Peck.
My book for middle school students is also available--"Carrie Chapman Catt: A Life of Leadership".
