Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison, a pioneer in her own right, became the first woman from the state of Texas elected to the United States Senate. In American Heroines, she celebrates the achievements of women whose commitment and courage enabled them to overcome prejudice and shape our nation's destiny. Here are inspiring accounts of trailblazers in fields ranging from government, business, and education to sports and the arts whose contributions have substantially bettered our lives and our world. Interspersed with profiles of American historic female leaders are profiles of today's women, including:

* Aviator Amelia Earhart and astronaut Sally Ride * Carleton Fiorina, the first woman CEO of a Fortune 50 company * Record-setting athletes Mildred "Babe" Didrikson Zaharias and Althea Gibson * Sandra Day O'Connor, the first woman appointed to the U.S. Supreme Court, and Madeleine Albright, the first female Secretary of State

Plus new material available in this edition

* An extended interview with Condoleezza Rice on her experience as Secretary of State * New biographies and interviews with Secretary of Labor Elaine Chao and author -- inspirational speaker Ruth Graham
