Product Description

Marie Curie was not only one of the most distinguished scientists of her time, she was also the winner of two Nobel Prizes, in an era when women in the sciences was anything but encouraged. Growing up in Russian-occupied Poland, she was born into an intelligent family who nurtured her education.

With photographs, quotes, illustrations and a running timeline, this is a thorough look into the life of a woman who broke through the barriers in her life. 64 pages, indexed, softcover.
