Rated 4 out of 5 by from Must-read for youth I had never heard of Anna Swan before picking up this light read, but am so happy to have learned about her life. A giantess who spent her time traveling, entertaining, and enjoying time with family and friends, Swan serves as a wonderful role model for youth who may be struggling to accept themselves or others as they are. Well written and featuring beautiful historic photographs, this book would be a wonderful read for youth in or out of the classroom. For teachers, the author has facilitated learning through the inclusion of a timeline and lexicon that any student will appreciate. This is a must-read for the youth in your life!
