kareila: hidden between stacks of books (books)

I found this lovely photo album featured in the juvenile biography section of my local library. Since Sally Ride was my biggest RL childhood hero, I couldn't pass it by.

This volume was compiled with narrative text by Dr. Ride's life partner, who gave some rare insight into the life of a very private person. It talked very frankly about her homosexuality, which I appreciated, given how taboo the subject was when I was growing up. It also gave equal weight to Ride's childhood, her college studies, and her post-astronaut career. It was informative and engaging.
