Grade 3-4?Bourke-White's adventures and accomplishments were many, especially for a woman in the 1930s and '40s, and this book doesn't do them justice. Welch describes her subject's many childhood fears and her early interest in photography, which she turned into a money-making venture after the death of her father. Through her camera, Bourke-White captured the power and beauty of steel mills and skyscrapers. From World War II bombing missions, to the Eleventh Field Hospital, to Buchenwald, she photodocumented history. The vocabulary and sentence structure belie the beginning-to-read format, with large print and ample white space. Hagerman's full-color illustrations have a photographic quality and some are loose reproductions of Bourke-White's work but do not hold a candle to the originals. Sylvia Wolf's Focus (Albert Whitman, 1994) and Emily Keller's Margaret Bourke White (Lerner, 1996) are better choices and include reproductions of the actual photographs.?Charlyn Lyons, Broome County Library, Binghamton, NY
