Jane Jacobs could have been one of the women who inspired Maya Angelou’s poems. A journalist who was an advocate for tradition, growth and holding to the foundation of which this country was built, Jane was an activist, a mother, an author and was favorite in the US and Canada.

Robert Kanigel’s research into Jacobs was very detailed and well-done. He highlighted areas of Jacobs’ life, her intelligence and her activities as if he walked with her daily.

Kanigel brings Jane Jacobs to life for many who didn’t know of her and her work. The writing is very perceptive about Jacobs, and very informative.

Good Read.
