Minna Hall and Harriet Hemenway, two very well bred Boston ladies, decide that something must be done. Fashionable ladies are parading around town with dead birds on their hats! So Minna and Harriet gather together the most prominent women and men in town and form a club to protect the birds. Thus is born the Massachusetts Audubon Society.

David Catrow has delightfully illustrated Kathryn Lasky’s fascinating tale of how two determined ladies became classic American activists—for women, for social progress, and, of coarse, for the birds.
