This volume examines the life of Carry A. Nation, whose destruction of saloons and other businesses that sold liquor in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century won her both praise and criticism from fellow temperance advocates. Although she was arrested, beaten, and often criticized, she impressed many people with her sincerity and courage. She carried the temperance crusade from the level of education to that of action, and helped bring on national prohibition.
