Senator Hattie Caraway: An Arkansas Legacy by Dr. Nancy Hendricks takes a fresh, new look at Hattie Caraway, the first woman elected to the United States Senate. Though largely forgotten and often dismissed as 'Silent Hattie' today, Caraway was once one of the most famous women in America, teaching herself how to help desperate people during the Great Depression and World War II. Along with material from previously unseen letters and documents, Senator Hattie Caraway: An Arkansas Legacy includes a rare interview with Caraway's granddaughter, who shares childhood memories of the woman Will Rogers called the 'Senatoress.' Vibrantly read by the author, you'll meet Hattie Caraway and see how her legacy lives on!
