520    In celebration of the Girl Scouts' centennial, this 
       biography ia a salute to its maverick founder.  Born at 
       the start of the Civil War, Juliette Gordon Low grew up in
       Georgia, where she struggled to reconcile being a good 
       Southern belle with her desire to run barefoot through the
       fields. Deafened by an accident, "Daisy" married a dashing
       British aristocrat and moved to England. But she was 
       ultimately betrayed by her husband and dissatisfied by the
       aimlessness of privileged life. Her search for a greater 
       purpose ended when she met Robert Baden-Powell, war hero, 
       adventurer, and founder of the Boy Scouts. Captivated with
       his program, Daisy aimed to instill the same useful skills
       and moral values in young girls, with an emphasis on fun. 
       She imported the Boy Scouts' sister organization, the Girl
       Guides, to Savannah in 1912. Rechristened the Girl Scouts,
       it grew rapidly because of her unquenchable determination 
       and energetic, charismatic leadership.  In this biography,
       the author paints a dynamic portrait of an intriguing 
       woman and a true pioneer whose work touched the lives of 
       millions of girls and women around the world.
