Critical Acclaim for Doris Weatherford

From the reviews of Milestones: A Chronology of American Women's History

Informative entries…A complement to reference collections in public libraries aiming for a thorough coverage of women's history.

Library Journal

Entries recount the great and small, all of it important…Thanks to its narrower national focus, this does not crowd the field of chronologies of women's histories, but improves it.

Retting on Reference (on-line; formerly Wilson Library Journal)

When I picked up [Milestones] and started leafing through it, I became engrossed in the early history you have compiled about women in colonial America. Your work will be a valuable reference for me and for countless others.

Hillary Rodham Clinton, June 13, 1997

From the reviews of American Women in World War II

Fascinating and immensely readable…She is especially sensitive to the experiences of black women…General readers will enjoy…and will be amazed.

Library Journal

Detailed, thoroughly researched book that brings to light a long-buried chapter in the history of women…Weatherford seeks out cracks in the wall of women's history, filling in the gaps in knowledge and rectifying the errors of assumption.

West Coast Woman

From the reviews of Foreign and Female: Immigrant Women in America, 1840-1920

An engrossing account…Absorbing chapters full of quotations from original letters and diaries…Meticulous research, vibrant reading…

Kirkus Reviews

Weatherford conducts an imperative examination…Weatherford's chronicle of courage is an integral volume in the continually unfolding social history of the American experience…An excellent advanced resource…
