Frankly and eloquently Dr. Mead relates here the events of her life up to World War II and the effects each of her remarkable experiences has had on her as a woman. After childhood and school days in Pennsylvania and one year at DePauw University in Indiana, the scene shifts to Barnard College in New York. There, under the influence of anthropologists Ruth Benedict and Franz Boas, the seeds of Margaret Mead's lifelong career were planned.ISBN: 0-688-00051-7
