Girl Scouts of the USA is proud to reissue Lady from Savannah in response to widespread demands for a biography of our Founder, Juliette Gordon Low. In truth, however, this is much more than a story of one woman and the organization she started. It is first of all a chronicle of two great families - the Kinzies who were founders of Chicago and the Gordons whose name is magic to this day in Savannah, Georgia - that in 1860 produced the gallant, willful, exasperating, generous, and wholly loveable Juliette (known as Daisy) Gordon. The narrative of Daisy's marriage to Willy Low also offers an insider's view of Ewardian high society in England.
The Girl Scouts are most particularly proud that this women from a background of wealth and privilage was able to envision a youth movement "for the girls of all America," which serves a membership of ever-increasing diversity as the diversity of our country grows.
