Rosie the Riveter

Rosie the Riveter

by Christine Petersen

Dramatic and defining moments in American history — from colonial times to the present day — come vividly to life in Cornerstones of Freedom, Second Series. A natural extension of the acclaimed original series, the second series returns its focus to the United States with more of what middle-grade teachers and students are looking for to support history, social studies, and geography curricula.

Authoritative and up-to-date, "Cornerstones of Freedom™, Second Series" is an exceptional and indispensable resource for middle-grade readers.

This book, Rosie the Riveter, recounts the inspiring story of the American women who took on non-traditional paid work outside the home during World War II.
