Hats Off! to Betty Jammerson Reed whose book Soldiers in Petticoats (Westbow Press, 2019) received high marks from Kirkus Reviews. In this detailed account of the lives of three Christian educators and their impact on Appalachia, Reed "takes the time to detail the barriers that these outsider women faced and uses their stories to examine the hardships and often violent struggles in the communities they served, which included members of the Cherokee Nation, emancipated Black communities across the Reconstruction-era South, and the isolated, often illiterate white highlanders."
