She Persisted: Wilma Mankiller




Inspired by the #1 New York Times bestseller She Persisted by Chelsea Clinton and Alexandra Boiger comes a chapter book series about women who spoke up and rose up against the odds--including Wilma Mankiller!

Wilma Mankiller grew up with the knowledge that, as a citizen of the Cherokee Nation, her people had long suffered mistreatment at the hands of the US government. As she got older and learned more about the injustices they had faced and continued to face, she dedicated her life to helping Native Nations and their citizens reclaim their rights. She went on to become the first woman Principal Chief of the Cherokee Nation.

In this chapter book biography by award-winning author Traci Sorell, readers learn about the amazing life of Wilma Mankiller--and how she persisted.

Complete with an introduction from Chelsea Clinton, black-and-white illustrations throughout, and a list of ways that readers can follow in Wilma Mankiller's footsteps and make a difference!

And don’t miss out on the rest of the books in the She Persisted series, featuring so many more women who persisted, including Maria Tallchief, Coretta Scott King, Harriet Tubman, and more!
