Author Name: Kirk FowlerWomen bring a grace and beauty to life that, quite frankly, men are incapable of. Without the love and nurturing received from our mothers, aunts, and grandmothers during our early years few of the male species would have ever grown up to be kind, loving, and civilized men. Women have taught me how to read and think, and how to feed and even dress properly. My understanding of the world has been largely due to the role of the amazing women who have graced my life. The kindness of women I have been fortunate to meet and get to know has brought me laughter and happiness that is as close to heaven as I am liable to get while living on planet earth. This book is a showcase of remarkable women from the beginning of recorded history till today and is my humble way of saying thank you… thank you a million times over for the impressive role and special gifts you bring to our world.
