Item Description...
Overview
It is often while we are striving forward on one path that we stumble across and even greater roadand so it was with Margaret ORourkeKelly. While working on her own campaign for a seat in the Michigan House of Representatives, ORourkeKelly came across the records of Dora HallStockman, the first woman to hold office in Michigan. This began her fascination with this oftenoverlooked historical figure, but through HallStockmans plays, stories, poetry, songs, and overwhelming contributions to the agricultural community, she has created an intriguing biography of a strong, patriotic woman of God, often ahead of her time, who overcame the constraints of her life and times to make a lasting contribution to American society.

She has two grown children who are a constant source of pleasure and inspiration. It has been said that we read biographies to not only learn about the lives of others but to discover who we are and what we might become. I have long been interested in women's place in history. Dora Stockman is a rare find. It was the beginning of a journey that led me along her many pathways. She was the first woman elected to public office in Michigan. Among her many talents she was an editor, educator, lyricist, poet, lecturer, playwright, politician, radio broadcaster, and reporterall this activity while wife and mother. It was a moment of serendipity when I uncovered her rich, full life. My goal has been and will continue to be sharing the life and times of this amazing woman with others.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Extraordinary Woman of her time  Aug 4, 2008
Dora Stockman lived her incredible life in Michigan to the fullest. She was a devoted wife, mother, farmer, business woman, politician, actress, author and more. She cared deeply about her community and it showed in the work she did both for the Grange and for education. This account of her life as a model Politician and much more is a tribute to the many women who have shaped our lives. Women like Dora Stockman paved the way for the women of the 21st century and it is important to remember how far women have progressed. This well written history about her life and accomplishments in Michigan would be a true asset to anyones library.
 
Phenomenal Book  Aug 3, 2008
A great read about a woman who worked her way to prominence via good works and a sincere love for education. Well written and suitably phrased for an enjoyable read.

The book also includes useful historical references to reinforce the time in which this woman made such amazing in roads into a male dominated world.

Women's-studies courses would be well served by the content and careful vetting of research that is the basis for this book.

A meaningful addition to any library regarding the Grange, Farm culture in the 19th and 20th century, Mighigan history, Michigan politics, Michigan women, and Michigan authors.

Truly a Phenomenal Woman  Jun 27, 2008
In a time in Michigan's History when women were in the Kitchen or at best a teacher. Dora Stockman blazed a trial of what I call the perfect Proverbs 31 Women. She was the first woman to run and win a major politcal office in Michigan. She was a poet, songtress and agriculturist all to the amazement of the culture at that time. She was not only a trail blazer of her time she is a fine example to young women and old alike that nothing is to hard if you believe and act in faith. Truly Dora Stockman was a Phenomenal Woman.
