“…Not since Ishbel Ross’ 1936 Ladies of the Press has such a comprehensive and essential text looked at women’s journalism history. …

“Undaunted is a true triumph and an authoritative text. This is largely because of the sources and historical methods used to take on such a huge project….

“At 568 pages—approximately 140 of which are references—this book is encyclopedic and should serve as a reference for scholars and graduate students studying journalism and American history.

“Overall, Kroeger tells a history more complete than we have ever seen before. I expect that few if any scholars will recognize all the names in Undaunted, and that, after reading, even fewer will forget their stories.”
