for March publication.
The publication date is March 8, 2015 but books will be available before that. The publisher is the American Graphic Press, which has created a special website for the book. It has published two other books by the same author.
I have received a copy of the book and it is nicely done. The author, Robert P. J. (Bob) Cooney, Jr., has gone to a great deal of trouble to find good new photos of Inez from the Library of Congress.
Having the texts of several speeches and editorials she made in one place is a treat. As an Inez fan, I am happy.
Here is the promotional release. I'm glad to see in the book Carl Sandburg's poem to Inez. It is energetic and captures the flavor of her life.
I appreciate the fact that the author uses her married name later in the book - Inez Milholland Boissevain. That was how she was known.

This is a rare photo of them
together. It is not in the book.
Here is a listing of some of the stories about Inez's last campaign in newspapers along her railway trail:
