Astronaut Sally Ride Included in New Enslow Collective Bio Series

The late Dr. Sally Ride always stood out from the crowd. Her high academic achievements, in scientific fields  where women were not always warmly welcomed, were consistent with her strong character and brilliant mind. She had the "right stuff" to become an astronaut and thrive in that profoundly macho world. In later life, Ride became a university professor and established her own educational enterprise.

Sally Ride's fascinating life story is included in Enslow's new Daredevil American Heroes of Exploration and Flight. Author Anne Schraff's 112-page book offers a collection of well-written, concise biographies of these courageous people. The work, part of Enslow's "Inspiring Collective Biographies" series, is among Enslow's Fall 2013 season's new offerings.

The book is available from Enslow in a library-bound edition for $23.95; that price represents a 25% school/library discount from Enslow's list price.A paperback edition is also available for $9.95.

You may also purchase these books from your preferred vendor, Barnes and Noble, and Amazon.
